Dodola and Adaba are the gateways to the Bale Mountains, one of Ethiopia’s main attractions in the south east of the country. Since 1998 these trekking destinations have become two of the country’s most popular destinations, allowing visitors to experience the “other” Ethiopia: off the historic northern route and the southern tribes and people.


Available tours starting from Addis Ababa lasting from 4 up to 6 days (days can be extended if trekking is required).

The lush mountain forests, pristine streams, accommodating guides, welcoming hosts and authentic customs of the Bale Mountains create a unique and unmissable side to Ethiopia.
Moreover, trekking in the Bale Mountains is not only nature tourism. What you find is a living example of sustainable tourism, run by local communities and local people.
