water falls including the famous Blue Nile

the Semien and Bale mountains are the most
spectacular and magnificent places for trekers and hikers.
The Simien Mountain massifs constitute many
summits above 4000 meters. The dramatic topography
of the region is the result of the erosion
of basalt lavas, which have been calculated
to be nearly 3000 meters thick.
