The Semien Mountains (Amharic: ስሜን ተራሮች), in northern Ethiopia, north east of Gondar in Amhara region, are part of the Ethiopian Highlands. They are a World Heritage Site and include the Simien Mountains National Park. The mountains consist of plateaus separated by valleys and rising to pinnacles. The tallest peak is Ras Dejen (4,550 m); other notable heights include Mounts Biuat (4,437 m) and Kidis Yared (4,453 m). Because of their geological origins, the mountains are almost unique, with only South Africa's Drakensberg having been formed in the same manner and thus appearing similar. Notable animals in the mountains include the walia ibex, gelada, and caracal.

Ethiopia has built its touristic reputation thanks to its impressive historical and cultural heritage. A friend of ours sent us pictures from a journey to the city of Gondar. Situated in the Semien Gondar Zone of the Amhara Region, Gondar is north of Tana Lake on the Lesser Angereb River and southwest of the Simien Mountains. Gondar is famously known to holds the remains of several royal castles, including those in Fasil Ghebbi (the Royal Enclosure). It's rightly considered as the "Camelot of Africa".
Erta Ale is a continuously active basaltic shield volcano in the Afar Region of northeastern Ethiopia. It is situated in the Afar Depression, a badland desert area.
