Tour Detail:

With their vast moorlands, the lower reaches covered with St John’s wort, extensive heath, virgin woodlands, pristine mountain streams and alpine climate, the Bale Mountains remain an untouched and beautiful world. Rising to a height of more than 4,000 meters, the range borders the southern highlands of Ethiopia. Mount Tullu Deemtu, the highest peak in southern Ethiopia, reaches 4,377 meters.
The establishment of the 2,400 square-kilometres of bale Mountains National Park was crucial to the survival of the Mountain Nyala, Meneliks Bushbuck and Simien red fox. This fox is one of the most colorful members of the dog family and more abundant there than anywhere else in Ethiopia. All three endemic animals thrive in this environment, while the Nyala in particular can be seen in large numbers. The Bale Mountains offer some fine high altitude horse and foot trekking, and the streams of the park- which become important rivers further downstream - are well stoked with rainbow and brown trout.
