Let's take a virtual tour of Ethiopia's Northern World Heritage sites. Ethiopia has much to offer intrepid travellers looking for something different. Travellers will find a fascinating history and cultural heritage dating back to the emergence of the first homo sapiens along with lush mountain landscapes home to many endemic species.
On this virtual tour of some of the highlights of Ethiopia's Northern Circuit, we will visit the following UNESCO World Heritage sites.

- Walking the grounds of Gondar's 17th century castles
- Sitting in the breathtaking Simien Mountains surrounded by Gelada (bleeding heart baboons)
- Visiting the historical giant stelae field of Axum
- Discovering the clusters of rock-hewn churches in and around Lalibela

There will be a chance to ask questions and for any participants who have visited any of these sites before to share their experiences and photos.

We will meet using Zoom video conferencing. The Zoom link to the meeting will be on this platform 30 minutes before the start of the event.
