If you missed my previous post, Hiking To Hudad Plateau, Ethiopia (Part 1), please give that a visit before proceeding.
Once we reached the Hudad plateau, we had the opportunity for some well-deserved rest. This included some fasting-friendly lunch, consisting of rice mixed with vegetables, and cheese-less pizza. We washed it down with a local drink made from honey. Our hike was during many fasting periods observed by the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. Since I like to observe local customs for the most part, I declined their offer to bring me some fried chicken.
The plateau was really like two plateaus, connected via a narrow ribbon of rock. Crossing what amounts to a bridge of rock, with certain death on either side of you, made for some elevated blood pressure to say the least.
The plateau had lush vegetation, plenty of birds, and a few smaller mammals. I’d love to return during the dry season, and actually stay in the lodge.
Thanks for dropping by! I hope that you enjoyed my travel photos and commentary, and will return for more travel content in the future.
