Beautiful scenery up the mountain and lovely clean air to breath in as opposed dusty Addis which at times sticks in your throat.

Highly recommended to drive by here on your tour. Fascinating to see the traffic of donkeys and old women walking down the mountain with firewood and other (heavy) things on their backs. Towards the top the nature is absolutely stunning, the forest is like something...More

Actually the way up (if not done by private transport) is the real adventure. The hill itself could be even better without the church and "ancient" buildings and especially without the totally overpriced entrance fee

Not a lot of explanation of items, but a decent small collection. Nice ride up and a decent view outside.

Not a must but nevertheless a pleasant walk in the hills with a nice view of the city. The road is good but busy with people and donkeys caring wood.

If you one of those adventurous sort keen on African History then Entoto Hill and King Meneliks palace are biggest draw card of your tour. This place is full of history.
