Tour overview

The Kackar Mountains are known for the complexity and power of the streams and rivers which rush down to the lower altitudes. All shades of green and blue, literally hundreds of glacier lakes, immensely rich flower meadows and wildlife surprise those who imagine the country to be nothing but barren steppes. And also the honey from the upper grasslands and forests is enough to climb any mountain. An ideal tour for those who enjoy intensive trekking, this tour includes a level of difficulty at an average altitude of 3000m.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Kackar Mountains, Trekking, Camping, Nature, Ayder Plain, Sumela Monastry, Local Villages.
