Excursion to Debre Libanos Monastery & Blue Nile Gorge



Ask a question about this tour

The monastery of Debre Libanos was founded in the late 13th century by Abune Tekle Haimanot, famous for its miraculous spring. The new church that stands beneath a cliff on the edge of the gorge has beautiful stained glass windows and mosaic figures on the faade. Two and half hours drive from Addis Ababa beyond Goha Tsion, the 100 mt (3000 ft) descents into the Nile Basins, enroute visit Gelada baboon and endemic mammals. This truly magnificent gorge is at 1 km depth comparable in scale to the Grand Canyon of America.
