  • Very interesting site to with a church and a museum to visit. Behind the church is also king's Menilik palace. It also merits a visit as it hides the story behind the name of the city and much more. The way to the top of the mountain is also full of life with villagers transporting wood and water on very basic transportation means or with no means at all other than simple physical strength. The mountain is surrounded with ecaliptus trees and offers a great view to the city.
  • The weather is perfect. You feel a fresh air like the old days.
