These eroded mountains rise dramatically out of several major plateaux featuring deep valleys and sharp precipices that drop around 1,500 meters. They are also the only place in the country that will regularly get snow in winter.

Three of Ethiopia’s endemic mammal species live in the Simien Mountains including around 20,000 geladas; the Walia ibex that does not exist outside of these mountains and the very rare Ethiopian wolf with a population of no more than 100 remaining. There are also over 50 species of birds in the national park including the bearded vulture with an impressive three-meter wingspan. The Simien Mountains National Park was one of the first places to be made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1978 and the spectacular scenery in every direction makes the Simiens fantastic hiking country.
