I visited the tigray churchs with
"Rock ethiopia tours" and was amazing. There was very good guide, he speaks clear English and has a lot of knowlege. They took us from Mekele to hauzen and we visited in Mariam korkor and Daniel korkor. We slept at vision hotel in hauzen. The next day we visited Abuna yemata church and 2 more churchs. Then they took us back to Mekele.

If you go to Ethiopia and take the normal tour of Omo Valley and Lalibela only, you are missing a real gem. Gheralta (not only the rock but the whole area) is breathtaking! Such a beautiful landscape with a lot of local people working in the fields, amazing sunsets, not to mention the hidden rock-hewn churches that defy gravity. I have been to Ethiopia a couple of times, and this is definitely one of my highlights

This is a remarkable tourist attraction area with ancient Reck-hewn churches. Travelers need to hike to see some of these monasteries
