Gheralta

Situated in the heart of northern Ethiopia in the Tigray Province, the labyrinthine mountain system of Gheralta is home to the largest cluster of cliff churches in the country. These ancient 1000-year-old cave churches are undoubtedly one of Ethiopia’s top attractions but they are largely undiscovered. The area is covered with rugged mountains, dramatic cliffs, unique rock formations. Adventure lovers can look forward to exploring the scenic canyons, view the centuries-old frescoes decorating these rock-hewn Ethiopian Orthodox cave churches, and soaking up the spectacular mountain views. Visitors can experience an array of eco-friendly outdoor activities including mountaineering and hiking.
