The Bale Mountains National Park  –

this very beautiful place is known for its wildlife more than any other park in Ethiopia.
Far from the iconic rock-hewn churches in Lalibela, royal castles and others ancient sights of northern Ethiopia, comparatively few visitors make it to the Bale Mountains. Those that do are rewarded with a landscape of high drama – ranging from wild, rugged alpine scenery to thick, damp cloud forest – that’s home to an astonishing array of endemic species and the densest concentration of large mammals in the country.
