There the possibility to see a klipspringer and minlikbushbuk  as well as a leopard (if we are very lucky!).

The entertaining gelada baboons are always around.   Along the way we pass the 500m high Jinbar waterfall and stop for lunch on the banks of the Jinbar river.  We pass through Geech village where we can have coffee with a local family in their traditional tukul hut which they share with their animals.

This is a great way to glimpse the day to day life of the mountain people.  Overnight at Geech camp[/tm_tab_item][tm_tab_item textarea_html_bkg_color=”#ffffff” title=”Day 3″ tab_id=”tab_id-1563384098941-1″]

Hike from Geech to Ambaras, about 5 to 6 hours. On the way we visit Imet Gogo, the single most spectacular spot in the whole of the Simien mountains.   Imet Gogo, at 3926m, has 360 degree views of canyons, cliffs and valleys that look as if they go on forever.  From Ambaras we drive back to Gondar.
