After several hikes , 6500 km on the road and 2 domestic flight , finally ending my trip in Addis Ababa watching the World Cup final . Northern and Southern Ethiopia has very contrasting landscape . Many thanks to Aspire Ethiopia tour for making this possible . Initial arrangement with Gashaw N was rather quick and smooth via email and subsequently followed by WhatsApp . Northern Ethiopia trip such as Simien mountain, Danakil depression was added last minute 2 weeks before arrival . While in Ethiopia, Lalībela was added also added last minute due to its close proximity . Special mentioned to the driver Taye and guide Fitse for making the journey a safe and enjoyable - at times a humorous .
