Bale Trekking Tours takes you to experience epic journeys through the national parks that varied climates harbour a multitude of different ecosystems More than any other park in Ethiopia, the Bale mountains national parks is known for its wildlife. Over 60 mammal species and 260 bird species have been recorded here.
For the hikers out there, there are a multitude of trails along the rolling green hills and this trekker routes cover a relatively small area, and most treks last six days, or four days with a vehicle. Most of Bale Treks is fairly gentle and undemanding, following good, well-trodden paths or sheep tracks. But don’t forget that altitude makes easy-looking terrain quite heavy going.
BALE MOUNTAIN TREKKING TOURS gives you opportunities for unsurpassed mountain walking, horse trekking, scenic driving and the changes to view besides staggering number of bird species and Ethiopia’s endemic mammals like Mountain Nyala and Ethiopian wolf.
Bale Mountain scenery may be less spectacular than the Semien Mountain’s, but it’s certainly no less beautiful. As you approach the park form Dodola, ridges to the east are punctuated with fortress like escarpments, while those to the north are gentler, their rounded rock pinnacles dotting the ridges like worn teeth protruding from an old man’s gums. Within the park, rivers cut deep gorges: alpine lakes feed streams: and water accepts gravity’s fate at several waterfalls. In the lower hills, highlanders canter along century-old paths on their richly caparisoned horses, and the noise of shepherds cracking their whips echoes around the valley. Among the abundant wildflowers, beautiful birds’ such as the malachite and Tacazze sunbird flit about.
Ethiopia Tour Operator arranges hikes and pony/horse treks deeper into the park. Most Bale trekking options last six days, or four days with a vehicle and the most popular trekking option is a three- day horse or pony trek to the Sanetti plateau, which allows you plenty of time to explore the alpine moorland and all but guarantees a sighting of Ethiopian wolf.
Bale Trekking Tours offers a guided wilderness trekking which leads through the juniper forest around the park headquarter, demands a few hours’ exploration as it protects the main concentration of Bale’s mountain Nyala. This exceptionally handsome antelope is abundant in the area, as is the superficially similar but much smaller and more solitary Menelik’s bushbuck.
