About Ethiopia

Ethiopia is the land of extremes, a land of remote and wild places.Some of the highest, places like the Simien Mountains which is called the roof of Africa and the lowest, such as Denakil depression in the African continent are found here.


Ethiopia is the land of big skies and broad landscapes. In the highlands, the plateau reaches endlessly to a horizon that blends in to blue sky speckled with white cumulus clouds, a sky that is an integral part of the landscape. As you travel the countryside, you can see a lot of octagonal churches topped with an Ethiopian cross which you can imagine that the people are very religious.

The Ethiopian Orthodox church has its own head, follows its own customs, and is extremely proud of its fourth century origin which means Ethiopia was Christian before Europe.
