The High Plateau's Brooks and Pools
Nature Pools at the Plateau Above Bees' Cliff
14. A Great Wildlife View and Meandering streams.
Above Bees' Cliff, this plateau is a magnificently beautiful place with a great panorama view over the stream and many landscape characters. When the scene turns south, the abyss Bees' Cliff (14), the ravine, is very close, where the river's further gorge meandering (35) becomes intuitively felt through the profound cooling airflow rising from the unknown abyss below the field of view.

|Detailed Description of the Hiking Trails|
Close Encounter With Playing Baboon Families.While this Ancient rock chasm (14) is unique in many ways, there are also careful reservations about people's impact on its nature. Because this site contains what is desirable for people and wildlife, the result is that a conflict of interest and living space can occur. The wildlife utilizes this rich, three-dimensional diversity in water and rock formations through the natural health in the varying and dramatic scenery. Naturally, therefore, it is appreciated that visitors show interest by approaching the site carefully.
The Complex Culture among the Wildlife.This is mainly the case of baboons with playful kids, caring mothers, and dominant guarding males. These are advanced creatures that resemble humans in many ways and then especially their emotional behaviour. Very clearly, this is observed when wild baboons are successfully breeding guard dogs and cats for an unknown reason. Still, the rat's appetite may not be appreciated intuitively by hungry baboon families.

|14. Lush Attractions Above the Abyss|
The different choice of ways to these natural pools just above Bees' Cliff (14) follows those previously described from point (37), map square [A]. Thus, there are several very different paths choices just uphill from map circle (B) but also becomes enriched by a more thorough, independent acquaintance with the full south-eastern to north-western eroded soil road (41) located to the right of points (14 - 16).
41. A Wide Trail from South-East to North-West.Although, this ground road (41) towards Bees' Cliff pools is eroded and requires some maintenance before use by cautious, conventional tourists vehicles. However, its extent is suitable for reaching these nature pools at Bees' Cliff (14). It is, therefore, a beautiful way for a promenade to the rock ponds (14) or further brook ford wade to Entoto Natural Park (Nursery) 34.
Natural Rock Pools and the Dramatic Abyss of Bees' Cliff.The pictures' location with the spring-water and natural pools is at the southern rim ledge of the high plateau, between points (14) and (41- 42). The scene is reminiscent of invitingly wild rock baths in absolute proximity to the breathtaking view above the canyon (35). These baths' location is just a few steps above the hidden stone chamber, which forms the gate to the waterfall and the northern preamble to Bees' Cliff's abyss (14).
The High Plateau of Entoto Natural Park.
A Turmoil of Chaos in Waterfall and Thunder.However, the plateau location is above any instant protection by the community's taxis, bus stations and shops from the quaint ledge town (1) and Entoto Kidane Mehret Church (32). Due to this harsh reality, some reservations are required for the season time when this high plateau is appropriate for visits and when the site needs extra caution.
19. The Cautious Choice for Families.
Therefore, during the rainy season, it is,s therefore, appropriate to enjoy the beautifully undulated promenade to the site of the Italian built spring water facility (19). Entoto Kidane Mehret's inhabitants are bringing their household water from this source. Therefore the company is apparent by playing children and people fetching quantities of water to their homes.
|Spring Water with Bath.|
There are two rainy seasons per year, the small rainy season from March to May and the significant rains from July to September. The highest rainfall intensity occurs in July and August (Demissew, 1988).
This place may appear scary during the relatively long rainy season, as the water flows are high and intertwined with rapidly sudden thunderstorms where only a powerful terrain vehicle would give protection.
Some Mornings Hours of Wonderful Respite.
While this site offers an exhilarating beauty and the storms usually follow a bound rhythm, its experience in beautiful, cosy daily hours can be both an exciting and irresistible occurrence. Still, it provides a conscious behaviour to return in time before the next thunderstorm.

** [CAUTION]: Bees' Cliff (14)
Although this remarkable rock vault and bath is the most entertaining of wild places, it is fatal during rainy seasons, without any possibility of a positive outcome.

The photograph with the Waterfall & Bath.
The picture with the waterfall: The outlet for Bees Cliff's real waterfall (14) and its abyss is just some metres behind but still concealed by this opposite camera view of the smaller and cosy waterfall in the photo. However, the little bath and waterfall in the image is a concealed rock vault, and its location is high above the abyss.
The dramatic, secret rock chamber and cliff-hanger chasm.
The bath with the waterfall is both a staggering, inviting, and mysteriously hidden place. However, people with sensitivity to heights should not climb into this mountain vault without being double secured with harnesses and other equipment. The last photo shows a deep pool a few steps above the hidden vault of Bees' Cliff (14).
Caution & Adventure History
"Entoto's climate during the rainy season was moreover far from pleasant, for it suffered from many storms. A French traveller, Jules Borelli, states that it was a place of much lightning, thunder and fog, while his compatriot, Charles Michel, remarked that, ''exposed to the wind, difficult of access, and without drinking water'' (Ibid, p.103). (Håkan Blanck and Pia Englund, Entoto Natural Park 1995).
A Time of Fragrance, Harmony and Beauty.
At the end of the rain season in September - October, the high plateau becomes a deep attraction where streams and waterfall stabilize. In October - November, a gentle, romantic flow of ideal conditions becomes evident.
