A days excursion out of Addis Ababa with your own Private Guide

Debre Libanos Monastery was founded in the 6th century and its named after one of the monks that came from Syria to Ethiopia with other 9 saints in the 6th century, to preach Christianity and introduce monastic life. The other Ethiopian Saint which is known as ST Abune Tekle Haymanot from North Shoa province of Ethiopia, took the place in the 13th century and has prayed there around 29 years. Out of these, 7 years, he stood and prayed with one leg.
It is a very popular historical place for pilgrims and people from abroad.
Here, there is a nice museum that displays manuscripts, Royal and religious garments and gifts from various persons. Near the monastery, there is a cave for those great ST Abune Teklhaymanot which prayed here.


On arrival at Bole Int Airport we will meet you then we will drive to one of the holiest and respected Monasteries of Debre Libanos. On the way, we will see the amazing plain lands of Oromia regions.
When at the monastery, we will visit the museums first, then continue with the inside parts of the church to see some paintings.
You will see the caves that were used by the founder of the ST like a praying places for more than 7 years.
We will be going to the Portuguese bridge and on the way, we will see one of Ethiopia's endemic mammals, the Gelada or bleeding heart baboon (in the gorge there are a variety of vultures - Lammergeyer, Ruppell, and Lappet-faced vultures).
Leaving the Gorge, we proceed to the church.
Finally, we will be back to Addis Ababa and drop you the airport or your hotel.
