A land of stunning geological and cultural contrasts

Twice as large as Texas, Ethiopia’s landscapes are far more varied: its Semien Mountains are higher than the Alps, its lush highlands rise like an island from the deserty sea of East Africa, and its austere southern reaches are vast and inspiring, still largely forgotten by the world. Its civilization achieved great wonders like the amazing churches of Lalibela, carved out of living rock. And, its people—Christians and Muslims in about equal number these days—share a deep, gracious hospitality toward visitors.
