Hi My boyfriend and I are planning to visit Ethiopia in December. We plan to fly from Addis Ababa to Lalibela around the 13/14th December and then after head onto bahir dar and gondar. As it will be coming up to christmas we were wondering if this would affect plans? costs? accommodation availability? We plan to book a flight within Addis for Lalibela, when we arrive in Lalibela will it be easy to find somewhere to stay? or should we book ahead? Any recommendations? We like the sound of doing a three day trek of either Abune Yosef or the Simien Mountains. How much roughly do one of these treks cost? How/where is best to arrange? And any suggestions where to be for christmas? and then new years eve? Also any general advice on good routes round would be great! Afterwards we are planning to head to explore south ethiopia and then onto kenya. Thanks :)
