This tukul styled hotel claims to be the highest hotel in Africa and is located at the start of the main trekking trail to Mount Bwahit. Many visitors to the Simiens will stop by here, if even just for a day use to have lunch and trek around the area before returning to Gondar. The hotel does offer tent and sleeping bag rentals and can assist travelers in obtaining guide service for the treks along the escarpment. 

The restaurant typically provides international cuisine and can accommodate for specific dietary requests. An a la carte menu of Ethiopian and European food is served all day.  The bar has recently been updated as well providing comfortable chairs and a fireside ambiance to help guests unwind at the end of the day. Typically a lecture, discussion, or informational video are presented by staff in the evenings for those desiring to learn a bit more about the Simien Mountains and her species.

Each of the 26 rooms rooms are housed in half of a tukul, or traditional circular village "huts". They are spacious with two twin beds (two have a double bed instead), bathroom with shower, solar powered heated floor and a sheltered balcony. It is advised that guests also bring many layers of clothing, as it can get chilly in the mountains at night.

Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
