This event is organised by Care Epilepsy Ethiopia and Epsa iom. In support of ongoing fund raising, both Charities are combining to offer an opportunity for Trek enthusiasts in the Island to experience the superb landscape and wilderness of the Simien Mountains of Ethiopia. The specially designed itinerary will take you through stunning mountain scenery, remote villages and abundant wildlife in the Simien Mountains National Park. Our ultimate goal is the summit of Ras Dashen, the highest peak in Ethiopia (4,620m) and the fourth highest in Africa. The trip will also include time in Lalibela, to visit the UNESCO World Heritage listed rock-hewn Churches (known as the ‘8th Wonder of the World’) and in Gondar (‘Africa’s Camelot’) to tour its Castles.
