SEMIEN MOUNTAINS

The Simien Mountains are a component of the Ethiopian Highlands and are located in northern Ethiopia, northeast of Gondar in the Amhara region. They include the Simien Mountains National Park and are listed as a World Heritage Site. The mountains are made up of plateaus that rise to pinnacles and are divided by valleys. Ras Dejen, the tallest mountain in Ethiopia, rises to a height of 4,550 meters. Kidus Yared, the second-highest peak, is at 4,453 meters. Mount Biuat, at 4,437 meters, is another noteworthy peak.

One of the rare locations in tropical Africa where snow frequently falls is the Simien Mountains, which makes them unusual. [4] Due to their geological makeup, the mountains are practically unique; the only other range that shared a similar formation process and appearance is the Drakensberg range in South Africa. The Walia ibex, gelada, and caracal are prominent mountain creatures. There are a few wolves from Ethiopia.
