Stop At: Melka Kunture, Turn West 100m South Of Awash River Bridge And Drive 1 Km., Addis Ababa Ethiopia

Accompanied by a tour guide and a driver you head toward south-west on the Jimma road, before turning due south on to the Butajira Road. Melka Kunture lies near the Awash River Gorge and is one of the most important Neolithic sites in Ethiopia. It's a site where Hand axes and other tools were excavated and has a museum on the premises where one could take a lovely tour.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Adadi Maryam, Addis Ababa Ethiopia

You then head towards the mystical Rock Hewn Church of Adadi Mariam which is contemporaneous with those of Lalibela – in fact local tradition ascribes it to King Lalibela who is said to have had it built on his visit to Mount Zuqwala in 1106. You will have a lovely picnic lunch near the Awash River Gorge.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Tiya World Heritage Site, Tiya Ethiopia

At last you will visit Tiya, classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, where we can see the northernmost example of a peculiar type of engraved, standing stellae. These stellae are believed to have been erected between the 12th and 14th centuries and are almost certainly grave markers – recent excavations at Tiya have revealed the remains of young people of both sexes, buried on the site.

Duration: 2 hours
