Home to one of the oldest forms of Orthodox Christianity, watch white-robed devotees drift into Addis Ababa's Church of the Holy Saviour on the eve of Genna (Ethiopian Christmas) and witness Timkat rituals in Axum, once the seat of the great Aksumite empire, and Addis Ababa. Explore Ethiopia's architectural wonders in the form of its rock hewn churches and monasteries in Lalibela and Tigray, the ancient obelisks of Axum, as well as the fabled castles of Gondar. For raw natural beauty, walk amongst gelada baboons in the misty Simien Mountains, trek to the source of the Blue Nile and take the boat to a hidden island monastery on Lake Tana.
