10 Reasons Why You Must Visit Ethiopia This 2016

1.      Great Connectivity

Ethiopia is a really easy country to get to, with double daily flights from Mumbai and Delhi to Addis Ababa on Ethiopian Airlines. Ethiopian Airlines are the best among African airlines; they fly to 62 destinations worldwide. Ethiopia offer comfortable accommodation, in numerous accommodation options, that range from cheap lodges and inns to luxury hotels. You can choose from a range of resorts and hotels to stay.


2.      The Landscape

Ethiopia has an incredible array of beautiful sights to be seen. Among these are the Simien Mountains, the Danakil Depression, and the Blue Nile Falls. All these places are breathtaking, and it's worth trying to visit at least one of them if you travel to Ethiopia.


3.      The Wildlife

Ethiopia has many national parks, such as Awash National Park, Abijatta Shalla Lakes National Park, Mago National Park, and more. These parks, along with the lakes of the Great Rift Valley, are home to rare species of birds and animals, such as the Mountain Nyala, the African antelope, the Walia Ibex, the mountain horned goats, and the Ethiopian wolf.


4.      Historical Places

Ethiopia has a rich history which can be seen through its historical structures. The 11 churches of Lalibela, for instance, were built during the 12th and 13th centuries. These churches are cut from rock, and they are absolutely incredible. The Castle of Fasilides built in the 17th century, is another fascinating place to visit. This castle has taken little damage over the centuries and is a popular destination among tourists. It is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


5.      Cuisine

Ethiopian cuisine is something that really has to be tried! The best known dish is injera – large, spongy, pancake-like bread, on which portions of spicy meat and vegetables are served. The injera is used not just as a serving dish, but also as an eating utensil used to scoop up the sauces – a sometimes messy but always delicious experience!


6.      Coffee

Ethiopia is where coffee was first discovered. In the 9th Century a goat herder found that after his goats nibbled on the coffee beans they would not sleep at night. Today coffee is still grown and roasted across much of Ethiopia. Taking part in an Ethiopian coffee ceremony is an eye-opening cultural experience, which is always followed by a huge hit of caffeine in the freshest cup of coffee you will ever taste.


7.      Festivals

Ethiopia has a year-round calendar of celebrations, which are colourful, dynamic and offer a real insight into Ethiopian culture and tradition. If you are able to coincide your trip to Ethiopia with one of these festivals you will be rewarded with a spectacular and memorable experience.


8.      Nightlife

If you are the one who loves music all night long then Ethiopia is the place to be, Addis Ababa boasts of the best nightlife that you could ever enjoy. The place is literally flooded with numerous bars, clubs, discs and other night spots.


9.      Rich Culture

Ethiopians own a culture that has been growing ever since history itself begun to be present. Unlike the other African nations, Ethiopians were able to protect their country from the European colonizers which helped them in keeping their culture from the exposure of becoming a mixture of another. Every ethnic group has its own unique way of dealing with life which usually gives a shock for many of the travelers whose luck has made his destination to be Ethiopia. If you are a person of curiosity to see what such genuine culture looks like Ethiopia must be your choice.


10.  Trip to Danakil Depression

The most alluring part of the Afar region, though difficult to access except on an organised tour, is the remote and volcanically active Danakil Depression. It is one of the lowest-lying places anywhere in the planet, dropping to 116m below sea level, while temperatures on its shadeless plains often soar above 50°C, and are exacerbated by a fierce gale. This is a challenging travel destination but, for all that, the Danakil is an area of singular geological fascination: a strange and at times beguilingly beautiful desert landscape punctuated by austere volcanic calderas, explosive cauldrons of bubbling red lava, malodorous sculpture-caked hot springs, recently solidified black lava flows, and vast, blinding salt flats that stretch for up to a kilometer below the surface.
