Overview

In Bale, you can trek all the way through richer mosaic of high altitude plateau, heather moorlands and dense juniper forest with as easily seen population of Mountain Nyala, Menelik’s Bushbuck, Ethiopian Wolf and some fabulous birds many of them endemic to Ethiopia. For keen hiker, Bale has offered Tullu Deemtu the second highest mountain of the country at an elevation of 4,477 meter (14,553 feet) and mount Batu at 4,207 meter (13,799 feet) although there are just the highest “bumps” in already very high Sanetti plateau.
