The Park's Activities and the Capital



The Park's Activities and the Capital

Elevated Protectorate

All over the Park, towards the very high plateau, often attract 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 the Ethiopian Nature and Science Beauty A National Park near Addis Ababa is a serene attraction for many people every season. School children will be actively using the Park for environmental education purposes (or to find a peaceful spot to do the homework.


Entoto Kidane Mehret Church and Sanctuary

Entoto Kidane Mehret is a very dedicated and appealing mountain town but should more precisely be described as a profoundly religious Sanctuary and Protectorate of Nature and its Inhabitants.



A Sanctuary of Grand Well-being and Refreshing Well-aroma.
The courtyard of this sanctuary (32) is very open and extensive but invitingly cosy and soothing. The reasons for this surprisingly impressive feeling of well-being and harmony are certainly the well-tuned architecture, but also that this whole place is embraced by a natural and refreshing roof of high, fragrant and native Juniper trees. These native trees delicately delimit the interior courtyard in a private walled setting.

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's equipped with 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 mountain 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.

**[CAUTION] -

 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 caution observance in the family's daily route 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 pleasures without demanding efforts of any mountain hike offer the opportunity instead of choosing the 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).

Adventure History
"Entoto's climate during the rainy season was 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).

Photographs
These photos of water-filled streams and cascading waterfalls are 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 rain season ended.

Seasons for Swimming or Hiking.
Despite the period passed from these photo opportunities and the last rains being over a month, it is still a great asset of bath and fresh spring water flow on the higher ground of Entoto. But maybe for those some 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 the waiting adventures.

Thus, the company is apparent by playing with children and people fetching quantities of water to their homes.


Picnic care for the family (19)

The most beautiful and versatile Nature and fascinating places, which are also reachable within 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, this will require some unique and beautiful characters for the picnic. 

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 both appealing and irresistible. The most necessary for the Park's experience, picnics, and candy shop (2) is across the bus stop from the community (1). This comfort provides a conscious behaviour to return the short distance to Entoto Kidane Mehret (1) in time before the next thunderstorm.

Pleasant and Inviting Hiking Trails

The southern hillside of Entoto's rising shoulder is here apparent, and from this site (22), with the gully and its valley just beneath Entoto Kidane Mehret (32), the mountain dominating 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 of 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 somewhat harsh highland air, the hiking is captivating and comfortable but requires regular rest and is essential to drink regularly from the brought-with and full water bottle. However, underneath in 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 bottom (gully 22) and the river (35), where they rise towards breathtakingly sublime heights of aesthetically unforgettable dream paths.


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 very family-friendly gorge.

 A  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 cleft are apparent here. An excellent place for the well-equipped family to appreciate unforgettably thrilling adventures and the most pleasant magical mountain views where cosy picnics 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).


35. Season Limited Creek Hiking 

This dry creek bed hiking can be an exhilarating experience. It offers adventure experiences unique to those who may have the courage to surprise a pleasant strenuous Hyena. The shadows fall mysterious in 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 it has elapsed some months 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 much appreciate the site's freshness and natural wealth.


Climate

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

However, be careful and expect the worst scenarios because the animals are wild. Also, the most reliable rock will break if lousy luck and a rare and significant earthquake coincide.



14. **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 contacts toward the bottom of the abyss are 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 requires 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.
