Land of Origins

Ethiopia is located in Eastern Africa between the equator and the tropic of Cancer; in a region know as the Horn of Africa. Topographically, Ethiopia is a mountainous country and has a very beautiful landscape. The surface configuration of the country ranges from very high mountains (like the Simien and Bale Mountains) to one of the lowest areas below the sea level in Africa the Dankil Depression. The highest peak in Ethiopia is Ras Dashen, which is about 4620m above sea level. While the lowest the Dankil depression is about 120 meters below sea level. Another major topographic feature in Ethiopia is the central plateau, which is bisected by the Great Rift Valley into North-East and South-West. The Great Rift Valley extends from Mozambique to the Dead Sea and the Jordan valley, passing a South-North direction through Ethiopia. Ethiopia is one of the few African countries that have a large number of lake and rivers. That is why it is regarded by some as “The Water Tower of North East Africa”.

Most of the lakes are found in the Great Rift Valley and they are one of the major sites of tourist attraction. The most prominent Ethiopia lakes are Tana, Abay, Chamo, Shall, Awassa, Abijata, Koka, Hayke and Ashenge. Lake Tana is the largest lake in Ethiopia and is located in the highlands outside the Rift Valley. It is the source of the Blue Nile and is the third largest in Africa, next to Victoria and Tanganyika. The major rivers of Ethiopia include Abby (Blue Nile), Wabe Seheblle, Genale, Awash, Takezze, Omo and Baro. Abbay is the largest river in Ethiopia. It is also called the Blue Nile and is the longest River in the world. The Blue Nile Fall is locally known as ‘Tis Issat” and is situated on the upper course of the river, about 30 kilometer downstream from the town of Bahir dar and Lake Tana. It is considered one of Ethiopia’s best-known tourist attractions.
