Melka Kunture, Adadi Maryam and Tiya, full day

A journey along Butajira Road will take you to 3 very interesting (pre) historical sites just south of Addis Ababa. If you have another day available it perfectly combines with an overnight at Lake Langano.

We pick you from your hotel after breakfast and leave Addis Ababa to the south through the fertile rolling hills. After about an hour drive we arrive at the prehistoric site of Melka Kunture. Half an hour further south the rock-hewn church of Adadi Maryam is found, build in the same style as the famous contemporaries in Lalibela. Somewhere in the area we enjoy a picnic lunch we brought from Addis Ababa.

From Adadi Maryam it is about an hour (45 km) drive to Tiya where mysterious stelae are found, most probably grave markers. From Tiya it is about 1,5 hour (85 km) back to Addis Ababa where we drop you at your hotel late afternoon.
