Gondar to Chenneck camp (3,620m) by car/ making a round trek
We will meet you in the morning at Gondar Airport or your hotel in Gondar. Drive from Gondar to Debark, which is the headquarter town for the national park. We will stop here to get a permission to enter to the park and meet the scout. We will have tea and coffee break and visit the local market if we have time. The local market is open every day, and every Wednesday and Saturday is the big market day. From Debark town, we will drive to the park gate, which is about 16km from the town. Then, we will head to Chenneck camp, which is located 58km from Debark town and is located in a beautiful valley at the foot of the Mt. Bwahit (4,430m). Along the way, we will drive pass Buit Ras and Sankaber camp, and stop to see Jinba waterfall, an incredible 500m sheer drop, the longest fall in Ethiopia. From the viewpoint opposite, you will see the different voltures such as Griffen Volture, Hooded Volture, Whitebacked Volture, Lapped-faced vulture and Lammergeyer along the cliff. Lammergeyer is one of the biggest bird prey in the world and feeds bone marrow. This area is the best place for lammergeyer to break the bone. This area is also good to see different small birds such as one of the Ethiopian endemic bird- Abyssinian Catbird. After we arrive at Chenneck camp, we will make a round trek. The path follows through the escarpment and you will enjoy the view of Mt. Emet Gogo. As long as time allows, we will climb up around the altitude of 4,000m. On the way, you may see Walia Ibex and Ethiopian wolf. You will also see many different birds such as vultures and small birds, and different plant species such as evergreen and high elevation plant Lobelia that grow above 3,600masl, everlasting flower, Erica Arboria tree, St. Johns Worttree (Hypercumrevoltum) and Festuca grass.
