When planning a holiday in Ethiopia, there are many places to see and activities to choose from. Here are just a few of the more popular tourist destinations in Ethiopia that should not be missed and must be added to the itinerary:
Simien Mountains National Park – The home of Ras Dashen Mountain, the highest point in Ethiopia, reaching an elevation of 4,550 meters. The Simien Mountains, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is also located within the national park. Trekking through the Simien Mountains National Park is often described as one of the best experiences to be had while in Ethiopia. The park is full of rugged and stunning terrains, challenging hiking routes and a chance to encounter the Gelada Baboons, a species of Old World monkey found only in Ethiopia.
Blue Nile Falls – Located on the upper course of the Blue Nile River, the Blue Nile Falls is a breath-taking sight to see.

Reaching the falls is also an adventure with a scenic but short hike up so be sure to wear comfortable shoes.
National Museum of Ethiopia – Located near the Addis Ababa University graduate school, the National Museum of Ethiopia is home to the famous “Lucy” (Australopithecus). It has several hundred pieces of bone artifacts that add up to 40% pf the skeletal remains of a female Australopithecus afarensis, an extinct hominid believed to have lived between 3.9 to 2.9 million of years ago. The museum also contains other important archaeological finds and artistic treasures of Ethiopia.
Holy Trinity Cathedral – Locally known in Amharic as “Kidist Selassie”, the Holy Trinity Cathedral is the highest ranking Orthodox cathedral in Addis Ababa. It is also the second most important place of worship in the country, after Axum’s Church of Our Lady Mary of Zion. The cathedral was built to honor the country’s liberation from Italian occupation.
