Visit Lalibela

Lalibela is one of Ethiopia’s most sacred sites, with a network of 11 churches hewn into the bed rock.
It was constructed in the late 12th century by the Saint-king Lalibela. Previously it was known as Roha (strangely reminiscent of Lord of the Rings , when taken alongside the next capital: Gondar).
A trek to the young lalibela trekking sites can be combined with a visit to Lalibela (and Gondar).
