Addis – Lalibela
Early in the morning you will fly from Addis to the UNESCO World Heritage Center and Holy city of Lalibela where you will be met for the drive up into town nestled in the hills above. The morning will be spent marveling at the well-preserved and awe inspiring 11th century rock hewn churches for which Lalibela is most famous; crafted beautifully from one single red volcanic rock during the ultimate period of masonry skills. Some are below ground only reached via narrow tunnels and small steps. King Lalibela is said to have had a vision to create these churches with designs given to him by an angel. The final church to be hewn and possibly the most beautiful of all is St. Georges, which is carved in the shape of a cross. Late in the afternoon you can enjoy the surrounding breathtaking scenery and in the evening partake in a traditional Tej ( home made local honey wine) taste experience for which Lalibela is famous.
