After the short hike to Ashetan Maryam (Saint Mary) Monastery, we continued on towards Hudad Plateau, a 3200m high mountaintop at the edge of the Simien Mountains. The day was still very overcast and at times a thick fog would roll in. The hike itself was 2-3 hours in either direction. Since we were in the middle of the rainy season, the terrain was very wet. My local guides knew exactly which mud or rocks offered the best traction, and they darted around with ease in their trainers. I on the other hand, had to carefully watch their steps, otherwise I had to test each step carefully in my hiking boots. I one point I slipped and sliced open my hand, but luckily being a boy scout, I had my first aid kit on hand!
Thanks for dropping by! I hope that you enjoyed my travel photos and commentary, and will return for more travel content in the future.
