Amusements and Beauty
Elevated Protectorate

All over the Park, towards the very high plateau, often attracts a glimpse of the Capital below the mountain. This is inevitable and should not be considered a disadvantage. Instead, the contact and the overlapping of the city and countryside is essential to point out. The Capital cannot isolate itself from Nature and the rural areas but depends heavily on them. The Capital does not look repellent at all but fascinating from the mountain. Experience of Ethiopian Nature and Science Beauty A National Park near Addis Ababa is a serene attraction for many people every season. Schoolchildren will be actively using the Park for environmental education purposes (or to find a peaceful spot to do the homework.

The High Plateau's Culture And Facilities

Entoto Maryam Church, Museum, Restaurants

Entoto Maryam (43) dominates just above Entoto Park (Z), and there is an allure to explore this historical site further with its vast high plateau. This high plateau offers surprisingly gentle terrain. A highland with a peaceful undulated landscape is evident, with accessible trails where a terrain vehicle can reasonably make close contact with the most sights and activities. Except for the historic and quaint mountain town with restaurants and museums, the highland offers a peaceful, undulated landscape.

Entoto Kidane Mehret Church and Sanctuary

Entoto Kidane Mehret is a Very Dedicated and Appealing Mountain Town; Still, it should more Precisely be Described as a Profoundly Religious Sanctuary and a Grand Protectorate of Nature and its Inhabitants.

A Sanctuary Of Well-being and Refreshing Highland
This Sanctuary (32) Entoto Hamer Nohe Kidane Meher Church's courtyard appears extensive yet surprisingly invitingly cosy and soothing. The reason for this awe-inspiring feeling of well-being and harmony is an irresistible combination of cosiness and grandeur.

A Captivating Beauty, Secluded on the Mountain
A well-tuned architecture and a natural and refreshing roof of high, fragrant and native Juniper trees embrace this place. These native trees delicately delimit the interior courtyard in a private walled setting on the secluded and elevated Sanctuary.

The Ascent to Entoto Kidane Mehret

Along the anticipated and continued pretty steep climb of the road is the experience of native forest (30) within arm's length of a charming but surprising experience. This native juniper forest is just very close, on the right side of the road, inviting in a revelation and guise to this wholly fenced but mighty Juniper forest (30) that spreads out vigorously from the steep ascent beginning and up to the road's clearance, completely beside Entoto Kidane Mehret (32).

A Mountain-based Station for Bus and Taxi
Although Entoto Kidane Mehret is quite highly located and appears distant due to its height above the Capital, it has a station for regular bus and taxi traffic. This quaint town's structure creates here a harmonic embrace of the extensive and impressive Entoto Kidane Mehret Church (32), Monastery and Sacred Water Source (31), Juniperus procera Forest (indigenous) 30.

Entoto Kidane Mehret Church and Community

The rock-based Sanctuary Entoto Kidane Mehret (32). 
Although Entoto Kidane Mehret (1) towers within the Capital's northern boundaries and its moun ain massifs, it seems remarkably preserved and well above all stressful whims. This Church (32) and Monastery are astonishingly hidden, tucked into the mountain massif rising shoulder where perception arises very soon. Required here is careful because precipices and gullies take over immediately when you move away from a bit piece of this remarkable protective town.

The hidden path between the Sanctuary and the gorge.
The trail runs attractively behind the Sanctuary of Entoto Kidane Mehret (32) in a concealed curve below its wall. The covered trail passes through a small part of the village before the path (5) opens along a deep ravine and finishes downhill towards a traditional bridge.

The superficial water-conducting metal pipe (37) - [A] assists the mountain hike where its apparent suitability begins on the slope above the valley [A]. This water-conducting metal pipe (37) makes the path easy to follow, where it reaches a pleasantly high level on the mountain's shoulder. At the same time, the route deviates into several exciting and beautiful choices.


 A Wilderness of Adventure & Ordeals

Note that the area is vast, and the family on an excursion should avoid the tiring adventure tours beyond the line of sight over the landscape of the mountain range. This cautious observance in the family's daily routine regards the family's well-being and pleasure due to the demanding terrain. Therefore, Do Not Combine the family today's new mountain adventure on the same day with tiring and exhausting fluttering trips between Entoto Kidane Mehret (1) and Entoto Park (Z), including Entoto Maryam 43. This caution is crucial because the impressions from each place are just at the upper limits of what a person can muster.

Those who want a lot of pleasure without demanding the efforts of any mountain hike offer the opportunity instead of choosing public transport (taxi). By this regular taxi, the route offers easy transportation along the mountain's side that reaches Entoto Park (Z) and further to the vast high plateau that extends around Entoto Maryam and its society (43).

Seasons for Hiking and Months for Weather Protection

Water: Drinking water must be available all year round, and cautious behaviour should prevail. Since most brooks dry out sometime during the year, it is best to always bring rugged bottles of water for hiking. However, a few springs within the Park area provide nice, drinkable water for all seasons.
Rain Season: There are two rainy seasons per year: the minor rains from March to May and the big rains from July to September. The highest rainfall intensity occurs in July and August (Demissew, 1988).

Activities and Recreation

The possibilities for activities are extensive, but the unique Nature offers a wide range of activities through the dramatic terrain in the centre. There are limitations regarding physically active and sporty events in that the landscape could appear too overwhelming in the vast and scenic landscape. Learning about this vast area and its possibilities often requires more time than the active can boast. Therefore, maps and specific points can offer a quick way to find highlights within half an hour's walk from Entoto Kidane Mehret (1), Entoto Mayam (43) and Entoto Park (Z). 


Alerts: Safety and Security

Note that the mountain massif is vast and has highly dramatic terrain. Hence, the family on an excursion should avoid the tiring adventure tours beyond sense and sight over the landscape of the mountain range. This cautious observance in the family's daily routine regards the family's well-being and pleasure in the Canyon or the vast high plateau. This caution is crucial because the beauty and ordeals of each place are just at the upper limits for a pleasurable excursion. **Therefore, Do Not Combine the family today's new mountain adventure on the same day with tiring and exhausting fluttering trips between Entoto Kidane Mehret (1) and Entoto Park (Z), including Entoto Maryam (43).

Adventure History
"Entoto's climate during the rainy season was far from pleasant, for it suffered from many storms. A French traveller, Jules Borelli, stated it was a place of lightning, thunder, and fog. At the same time, his compatriot, Charles Michel, remarked that it was ''exposed to the wind, difficult to access, and without drinking water'' (Ibid, p.103).

These photos of water-filled streams and cascading waterfalls were shot just above Bees' Cliff (14) at Entoto's southern highland plateau from early October to the beginning of November. When these active water sports photographs passed, it was about one to two months since the long rainy season ended.

Seasons for Wonderful Baths or Hiking

A Highland Climate for Amazing Activities
Despite the period that has passed since these photos at the beginning of November and the last rains being over a month ago, it is still a great asset for bathing among natural cliff baths and cataract entertainment in the fresh spring water flow on the higher ground of Entoto. But maybe for those hilarious adventures, it would have been even more suitable if they had occurred a month earlier and thus offered even more fun, spontaneous bath activities.

A Graceful Invitation to Serenity and Adventures
Attractively amongst the purging water and the seductive river banks, cliffs start below Entoto Kidane Mehret (32), attractive options for the continued hiking adventure towards the high plateau with viewpoint (16) and Bees'Cliff (14), which both rest on the southern rim of the high plateau. With curved cliffs in harmonious wave formations where the children play and the laundry dries on the inviting, soft, and clean, polished rock bed, this place is an appealing beauty, already at the first steps on the bridge below Entoto Kidane Mehret.

The Amusements' Importance for Joy and Pleasure

The Crucial Invitation to the Forgotten Era

Captivating Nature with amusements and serenity, offered to people's curiosity and pleasure, is the first gate of possible attraction. Thus, inviting visitors to the beauty of natural science by charm is crucial. Hence, attractive amusements among beautiful Nature entice the interest in environmental restoration to become a joy. Thus, amusements surrounded by gorgeous highland Nature provide an excellent stimulus for obtaining the necessary quality of ecological restoration.

The Cautious Choice for Families
During the regular rain season, enjoying the pleasant and sunny day hours is appropriate by choosing a nearby route and following the beautifully undulated promenade within a delightful valley and its enchantingly sculptural river dell. A bridge crossing following the hidden path (5) behind the Sanctuary (32) and then over the stream of the valley [A] invites a gentle promenade towards the Italian-built water technology (19) with its charming location at the threshold of the mountain.

Refreshing Spring-water Pleasure
The Italian-built spring water facility (19) is within the young family's picnic requirements and an excellent choice for most activities and nature interests. Entoto Kidane Mehret's inhabitants bring their household water from this source. Thus, the company is apparent by playing with children and people fetching quantities of water to their homes.

Picnics Care for the Family

The most beautiful and versatile Nature and fascinating places, which are also reachable with charming simplicity, are often the primary for family picnics but can often be challenging to accomplish within the convenience of the whole family's interest. Due to weather conditions, duties and family members' interest in comfort and alluring entertainment, the picnic will require some unique and beautiful characters. While this site (19) offers this required, convenient and exciting beauty, and the tempests usually follow a bound rhythm, its experience in beautiful, cosy daily hours can be appealing and irresistible. The more adventurous courses at the canyon (35) high above the valley [A] begin above the map loop (B) and continue up to the high plateau at Bees' Cliff (14).

Picnic and Play for the Young Family

An excellent and cosy invitation to gain an initial practical view of underground reservoirs and water technologies and a comfortable little walk is obtained within the valley [A- 19 just to the right of the bridge at Entoto Kidane Mehret (1). This place also offers an ideal little excursion for the young family on picnics where an open grass pitch offering all kinds of games can be enjoyed, which is breathtaking right beneath the start of the mountain. The Italian construction (19) at the site is nevertheless hidden underground but, at the same time, alluring for exploration. However, a more thrilling adventure is often required and is offered by a cosy mountainous picnic for the amused hike family. Detailed Trail Description to the Italian Mountain Fortress (38) - (B)

This place is the location of the Italian reservoir (19). On the map, the point of this concealed reservoir (19) is located just in the right part of [A] and easily reached by a gentle, undulated, and charmingly curved path. The bridge crossing here in the valley [A] is also the natural path for those who want a more dramatic hike towards the high plateau by the first passing point (37).

Within this open river-dell of paths, ways and bridge crossing, this enticingly cosy and beautiful valley attracts for waiting in pleasure, to not risk losing its beauty but spiritually sense to remain in harmony and fully engulf its full beauty in the sculptural shape.

The Sanctuaries' Provisions and Stores

The most necessary for the Park's experience, picnics, and candy shop (2) is across the bus stop from the community (1) and equally at Entoto Maryam (43). This comfort provides a conscious behaviour to return the short distance to Entoto Kidane Mehret (1) before the next thunderstorm, where this extended and elevated Sanctuary offers both cosy and grand scenery with a brook passing in the gorge deeply below the Sanctuary's walls. This brook characterizes the views of the dramatic landscape and cliff formations of the uphill trails. This brook invites further exploration of the coming adorable valley [A] with its river-dell. 

Accommodation and Food Services

The nearest location to the guest houses, hotels, and amenities for tourism is the Shero Meda (Shiromeda) community, with its central station and extensive appearance just below the Park's threshold. The northern hillside of the Capital in the Shero Meda (Shiromeda) district offers some itineraries and accommodations within some miles to the north and east of the Shero Meda's (Shiromeda's) central community. However, on the mountain's shoulders, dramatically high above the Capital and its northern Shero Meda community, is the superb location of Entoto Park (Z), with many newly inaugurated and completely exceptional facilities with further possibilities for wilderness lodging accommodations. The location of the Shero Meda (Shiromeda) community appears on the map and satellite image below in its lower left section.

Accommodation and Food Services
Shero Meda (Shiromeda) Community
The nearest location to the guest house, hotel, restaurants and amenities for tourism and dining is the Shero Meda (Shiromeda) community. However, this central community and central station are pretty extensive. Its possibilities for accommodation include an extent clearly south, east, and north of the indication on this map and satellite image.

Guest Houses, Hotels and Restaurants
Continuing up to the mountain massif Entoto Natural Park offers an exclusive selection of accommodations, including a number of glamorous restaurants at Entoto Park (Z) and Entoto Maryam (43). As the area progresses, it is an excellent opportunity for restaurants, cafes, and hotels some miles north of Shero Meda's (Shiromeda) centre.

Pleasant and Inviting Hiking Trails

The southern hillside of Entoto's rising shoulder is here apparent, and from the valley [A], with the gully and its valley just beneath Entoto Kidane Mehret (32), the mountain dominates very close. This ancient highland mountain, with its remote high plateau of authentic old serenity, is intriguing with its unique formations. Often veiled in mysterious beauty, the historical mountain towers with complete contact on the opposite side of Entoto Kidane Mehret. Thus, this mountain's mighty hillside initiates the first steps of Entoto's threshold that rises majestically over the southern slope. The towering landscape appears to visitors in profound veneration and reverence as it towers above a relatively high altitude. Caution is an essential foundation for preparation because the mountain's rise is quite demanding for visitors with otherwise healthy activities from the lowland experience.

Towards the Fresh Well-Fragrance of Highland

Despite this harsh highland air, the hiking is captivating and comfortable but requires regular rest. It is essential to drink regularly from the brought-with and full water bottle. However, underneath the valley and just after the handcrafted bridge rises, the mountain's slope towards Entoto's high plateau continuously upwards towards secret places of pure serenity, often with views of breathtakingly beautiful heights. Well-fragrant and aesthetically unforgettable are these paths from Entoto Kidane Mehret's valley [A] and the river (35) - (B), where they rise towards breathtakingly sublime heights of aesthetically unforgettable dream paths.

A Canyon of Grandeur & Adventure

The Rising Shoulder of Entoto's Massif

Here, the trails follow a clear direction up to Entoto's high plateau and, furthermore, including all of these exciting and surprisingly attractive paths along the eastern slope of the river bank, they are straightforward to follow in the landscape. This visible clarity in the appearance and selection of trails is apparent here, thanks to the attractive overview of the sculptural introduction to this family-friendly gorge.

Guiding Canyon Deliver Path Assistance
The open and pleasant contact with the lush hillside of these riverbanks towards the river (35) and its mysterious twilight clefts are apparent here. It is an excellent place for the well-equipped family to appreciate unforgettable adventures and the most pleasant magical mountain views, where cosy picnic places offer an utterly captivating nature. Although the canyon is mysteriously attractive, its accessibility is restricted to a few enchantingly inviting dells (see 38 within circle B and 36 within loop 14).

(B) - (14) Season Limited Creek Hiking 

This dry creek bed hiking can be an exhilarating experience. It offers adventure experiences unique to those with the courage to surprise a pleasant, strenuous Hyena. The shadows fell mysteriously into pesky creatures from the past and concealed cliff space, just waiting for the action in a somewhat overwhelming flow of impressions. Observing the hiking directly in the dry brook bed is only possible if some months have elapsed since the last rainy season.

The close encounter with the wild Hyena

By echoing the past, hiking here becomes an exciting and mysterious experience that appears to trigger forgotten abilities that have been genetically dormant sleeping since ancient times. Especially startling here is, therefore, the location of this place, the tributary (36), which invites a careful study of hyenas that appreciates the site's freshness and natural wealth.


Harmonic Currents Along the River 
Since all streams around Entoto run up within a short distance to the highest part of the plateau, there is no risk of being surprised by far and accumulated sudden river flow from an unknown range. There is no known weakness in the deep rock pools that could constitute a magazine water mass just waiting to break through a weak point in the cliff bottom.

**[CAUTION] During Rainy Seasons
The actual waterfall and the abyss are still hidden but respectfully close here, only some metres behind the view of this bath photo. However, this lofty concealed rock vault is a real challenge, with a staggering sight and a mysteriously cosy secret rock chamber. However, be careful and expect the worst scenarios because the animals are wild, and the most reliable rock will break if there is lousy luck. 

**Enchanting Lush Attractions Above the Abyss

 Bees' Cliff constitutes a hidden, unknown void, which can become a real danger and does not allow direct, easy proximity from either the east or the west side of the gorge's slopes. These precipitous cliff sides are so seriously too steep that all visual contact toward the bottom of the abyss is impossible. In all their Nature, a multi-dimensional, graceful beauty is nevertheless a false invitation of safety delivered. Through this deceiving natural trickery, the eastern canyon's slope gives an impression of invitingly lush beauty but a treacherous one with a fertile green breathtaking threshold, hiding a shocking void.

Safety Preparations & Unique Adventures 

Qualifications and care are necessary as the hiking trails are either unusually varied or dramatic in their diversity propagation up to Entoto's high plateau. No concealed walk in the dry creek bed should be done without company, depending on the possible risk of injury, fatigue, or heart fragility. Still, at least one more person is required in this type of concealed seasonal hiking. At least two litres of water per person in unbreakable bottles is a minimum for these Highlands adventures to Bees' Cliff.

The New Facilities of Entoto Park (Z)

Entoto Park (Z) facilities are below Entoto Maryam (43). These newly built facilities should inform the regulations for special open hours of this modern and extended centre for Entertainment, Culture, Art, sports activities and Breathtaking Highlands views of Nature and mountains. However, the freshly made Entoto Park is in its first phase of organizational development, and it is challenging to give personal service time. Despite this, there are probably conditions for direct contact with restaurants at this newly inaugurated Entoto Park (Z)

[ Free ]

[ Entrance Fee ]

The entrance to Entoto Natural Park is free, but the outside parking fee is 25 - 40 birr per hour if you're coming in your car. However, although the Park's Nature is free to visit, Entoto Park Gate Z's entertainment and amusement activities are usually accessible for a fee. Furthermore, as tourist visitors, remember your ID card or passport.

There is a specific selection of entrances to the different areas of the Park, with either unique amusements or Nature types, and their purpose is to promote the visitors' interests and enjoyment. These specific enticing choices here include very relaxing activities as well as more wild or cultural activities. This extensive selection is essential and follows both the family's and Nature's way of expressing a desire for health through attractive diversity.

Caution is here an essential foundation because the
mountain's rise is quite demanding, even so, for
visitors with healthy activities from the lowlands.

CAUTION: Use the Camera with
xtreme Caution in Contact with Precipices.

CAUTION: Dramatic Distances and High Altitudes
Besides, Entoto Kidane Meret Sanctuary (32), with its Church and Monastery, is astonishingly hidden, tucked into the mountain massif's rising shoulder. A dizzying perception arises very soon and demands care for young families. This observation is evident because dramatic views display spectacularly beautiful landscapes over the location of gorges, precipices, and gullies.

Demanded Harness in Contact with Abyss 
While these unique impressions can be thrilling, they also present a somewhat hazardous situation. It's crucial to handle your camera with care and stay away from the abyss. Remember, your safety is paramount, especially when you venture away from the comfort of Entoto Kidane Mehret (1) mountain town and Sanctuary (32).
