Simien Mountains National Park
The Grand Canyon of East Africa
The Simien Mountains may not be on the bucket list of every trekker, but should be. It's pinched peaks and endless canyons are an incredible view, but one can venture into these unique mountains with three+ day treks out of Gondar. Expect to see the gelada, a relative of the baboon, and ask your guide to find the rare walia ibex.
