Los misterios de Etiopía


The Abyssinian Riddle

Custom Travel to Ethiopia

The best way to custom travel to Ethiopia, in privacy, and down to the smallest detail. A different Ethiopia, first-person lived, within the culture’s symbols and myths.

Ethiopia transports you to a world anchored to tradition. Its orthodox Christian churches to this day worship the Ark of the Covenant’s existence; its colorful southern ethnicities sport tanned, tattooed and adorned bodies; traditions endure intact. You’ll marvel before sheared, rugged scarps and terraced cotton fields, lake-chains dyed pink and churches carved out of the stone at Lalibela. There’s a smell of coffee and eucalyptus that lines the changing landscapes in magical Ethiopia.

Recommended travel time: Spring

Ethiopia is home to varied weather having to do with altitude and geographic area. Temperatures vary between 13 and 33˚C. In general, the rainy season happens from mid-May to September; spring is driest. Rains tend to taper off quickly and do not impede travel; any time is a good time to travel in Ethiopia.

Seasonal experiences

In spring, specifically April, comes the celebration known as Fasika (i.e., Orthodox Holy Week) in Gondar, sometimes called the “Camelot of Ethiopia.” The buzz of prayers and sacred songs, the worshipers’ white tunics, lit by the tenuous light from candles they bear, the beat of the drum and the jangle of sistro tambourines conjure the holiday’s mystical and pious atmosphere. It’s an Ethiopia must-do if you’re there in season

Get close to the Ark of the Covenant during Mehela, a nocturnal parade held Fridays in summer and that starts out from the Church of St. Mary of Zion. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for discovering the secrets surrounding the most coveted relic from the Crusades to the present.

Or experience Ethiopia’s most fervent religious observations at a Timkat (i.e., “epiphany”) that commemorates Christ’s baptism in the Jordan River. It also brings together every Christian church in the nation for several days, in the form of stately rhythms and magical scenes.
