The Directions

Head downhill from the past the ticket office. Continue walking down this road beyond the traditional village until you come to a major junction and take a left. You should soon pass the turning for on your right, which you can pop into if you’ve already bought your ticket. Continue down this winding cobblestone road until you pass Alif Paradise Hotel and come to a junction. Take another left and follow that road for maybe 15 minutes until it joins on with the main road to the airport.
 
Follow the airport road for about 6km out of town. The road will become progressively more rural as you go, and traffic will pass by intermittently. After an hour to an hour and a half down this road you will see a left turn onto a dirt track through a village and a large blue sign post for . Follow the path up to the monastery for about a kilometre. The monastery costs ETB200 so you can choose whether or not to go in. Either way, the scenery is quite beautiful and rural.
 
Return back the way you came until you reach the fork that originally took you onto the airport road. Instead of taking the left turn back into lower Lalibela, take the steep road heading up and you will soon find your way back to the central roundabout with shortly after the left turn.

Top Tips

There are a few restaurants and small shops on the first third of the walk, but you may want to take plenty of water and snacks for the rest.
Keep an eye out for large birds of prey catching the thermals along the whole route and small grey monkeys on the way up to the monastery.
If you get tired of walking, a bajaj back to town should cost no more than ETB50.

Top Tips

Help us to review this! We couldn’t face the ticket cost after the , nor did we fancy tackling the busload of tourists that just beat us to the site.
Consider walking here on the if you want to make a half-day trip of the monastery.
If you don’t fancy going in, a fairly good photo opportunity can be had just beyond the ticket office. The staff will tell you not to take a photo, but it’s your choice whether or not to understand them.

Top Tips

Unlike the and the , Bete Giorgis is a singular church dedicated to St George.
This is the only church that is not covered and protected by a large awning, making it one of the most photogenic spots in .
Make sure the priest takes you down the trench and unlocks the church for you so that you can take a good look inside. As tempting as it may be, he does not like you to move aside the curtains, however.

Top Tips

The Southeastern Group is more adventurous and harder to find than the . It also feels a little more like a historical site, rather than a religious one.
To find this group of churches: when you exit the at the Tomb of Adam, turn right onto the main road. The first left will take you to , while the first right will take you up a set of steps. Keep right and you will soon find this group.

Top Tips

This is the only group of churches in which you will find a ticket office and a toilet, and most of the guides wait here too, so you must come here first before exploring anywhere else included in the ticket.
The Northwestern Group seems to have more consistent religious activity than the and contains a portion of one church that is prohibited for women.
Although the ticket office doesn’t open until 8am, if you already have your ticket, get here as early as possible to experience the most religious fervour. Climb up on the rocks for the best views.
