The road from Bahir Dar to Lalibela is very picturesque.
It gets increasingly dry north of Gashena, in the valley below Lalibela.
Lalibela is just below the mountain shown above.
We had a room with a view to die for, at the Maribela Hotel, Lalibela.
Lalibela sprawls across the hillsides.
We took a hike up the mountain behind the town. I had not previously realised that there is some excellent trekking in the area.
