However, the town and station Shero Meda is close enough to Entoto Kidane Mehret to offer a pleasant walk to Entoto Natural Park. Shero Meda (Shiromeda) is also the place that allows the most convenient access to Entoto Maryam, located on Entoto's plateau.

The choice of Entoto Kidane Mehret as a central base for further exploration of the Park is natural because both the Capital's buses and local taxis regularly have this place as the final location. Here they are waiting in the shade of large native trees before they again turn downhill and soon arrives in the Shero Meda (Shiromeda) station and society and the further the more central part of the Capital.
𝐄𝐥𝐞𝐯𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐝 𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐭𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐨𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐞The society Entoto Kidane Mehret (1) is a very dedicated and appealing mountain town. Still, it should indeed more precisely be described as a profoundly religious Sanctuary and Protectorate of Nature and Inhabitants. For a long time, this has been a religious protectorate of Entoto's nature, thus gaining unique and profound protection that has been deeply associated with religious devotion and conviction. However, the Hotel and Guesthouse is missing, which means that the nearest accommodation for tourism and dining is the Shero Meda (Shiromeda) community.
𝑨𝒏 𝑰𝒏𝒏𝒆𝒓 𝑪𝒐𝒖𝒓𝒕𝒚𝒂𝒓𝒅 𝒐𝒇 𝑮𝒓𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝑾𝒆𝒍𝒍-𝒃𝒆𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝑪𝒐𝒐𝒍 𝑾𝒆𝒍𝒍-𝒂𝒓𝒐𝒎𝒂The courtyard of this sanctuary (32) is very open and extensive but indeed invitingly cosy and soothing. The reasons for this surprisingly profound feeling of well-being and harmony are indeed the well-tuned architecture. Naturally, the reason for the great comfort is also that this whole place is embraced by a natural and refreshing roof of high, fragrant and native Juniper trees, which delicately delimit the interior courtyard in a private walled setting.

𝑨 𝑴𝒐𝒖𝒏𝒕𝒂𝒊𝒏 𝑪𝒐𝒎𝒎𝒖𝒏𝒊𝒕𝒚 𝒘𝒊𝒕𝒉 𝑮𝒓𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝑰𝒏𝒗𝒊𝒕𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝑺𝒕𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏Completely surrounded by its society, this station is characterized by an inviting cosiness, still, together with an accompanied impression of magnificence that cannot be expected in a massive rock ledge of a mountain. If it were not for the sanctuary that discreetly dominates its outer propagation, this station would be disproportionately large where it is located beautifully on this dramatically elevated hidden mountain plateau.
𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝑻𝒐𝒘𝒏 𝑨𝒅𝒐𝒓𝒏𝒆𝒅 𝒘𝒊𝒕𝒉 𝑯𝒂𝒓𝒎𝒐𝒏𝒚 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝑴𝒂𝒈𝒏𝒊𝒇𝒊𝒄𝒆𝒏𝒕 𝑹𝒆𝒗𝒆𝒓𝒆𝒏𝒄𝒆This unique 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.
𝑨 𝑪𝒐𝒏𝒄𝒆𝒂𝒍𝒆𝒅 𝑴𝒐𝒖𝒏𝒕𝒂𝒊𝒏 𝑺𝒂𝒏𝒄𝒕𝒖𝒂𝒓𝒚 𝒂𝒃𝒐𝒗𝒆 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝑪𝒂𝒑𝒊𝒕𝒂𝒍Besides, this sanctuary with its Church and Monastery are astonishing hidden, tucked into the mountain massif rising shoulder where perception arises very soon to be careful. The reason is the dramatic landscape where precipices and gullies take over immediately when you just move away from a little piece of this remarkable protective plateau and its quaint surrounding mountain ledge town.
𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝑨𝒔𝒄𝒆𝒏𝒕 𝒕𝒐 𝑬𝒏𝒕𝒐𝒕𝒐 𝑲𝒊𝒅𝒂𝒏𝒆 𝑴𝒆𝒉𝒓𝒆𝒕Along the anticipated and continued reasonably steep climb of the road is the experience of native forest (30) within arm's length of charming but surprising expertise. Here it is just very close, on the right side of the road loom in a revelation and guise of a completely 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).
𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝑺𝒐𝒖𝒓𝒄𝒆 𝒂𝒕 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝑴𝒐𝒖𝒏𝒕𝒂𝒊𝒏'𝒔 𝑺𝒉𝒐𝒖𝒍𝒅𝒆𝒓At the first part of this, both protected and protective forest, you find yourself a good piece below the society but are nonetheless part of its togetherness. The forest here (30) is impressive and serves the essential purpose of maintaining a clean and uncontaminated spring water.
𝑱𝒖𝒏𝒊𝒑𝒆𝒓 𝑴𝒐𝒖𝒏𝒕𝒂𝒊𝒏 𝑺𝒑𝒓𝒊𝒏𝒈Just to the right and slightly below, at the beginning of this step well-fenced juniper forest is a highly sought after and a famous building where the water from this mysterious, ancient place will arrive in cascades and qualitative amounts.

With a refreshing and pleasant presence of original nature imparts a crystal clear stream below the gnarled roots of these venerable and furrowed guards in the shape of ancient patinated Junipers.
𝑭𝒂𝒄𝒊𝒍𝒊𝒕𝒊𝒆𝒔 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝑨𝒎𝒆𝒏𝒊𝒕𝒊𝒆𝒔 𝒂𝒕 𝑬𝒏𝒕𝒐𝒕𝒐 𝑲𝒊𝒅𝒂𝒏𝒆 𝑴𝒆𝒉𝒓𝒆𝒕This community is equipped with shops (2) for the most essential, beautiful cultural buildings with associated spring water and indigenous forest of giant Junipers (30). These constitute significant assets altogether for all type of adventures, picnics, and hiking in the varied mountainous terrain of Entoto Natural Park.
