The unbelievable cliff churches of Gheralta, Ethiopia

The latest from Drifter Scotty:


One of my favourite things in life is to experience stuff that few people on Earth have done. Probably not my best quality ;) .

I managed to achieve this on a recent road trip around Ethiopia. The country is not on many tourist agendas (though it really should be) especially if you are adventurous, love dramatic landscapes and enjoy a mixture of ancient history and culture. The cliff churches of Gheralta are removed from the usual tourist route making them truly remote.
The climb takes about 1.5hrs and not for the faint of heart. I don’t consider myself scared of heights but scaling vertical walls with no rope safety had my heart racing on more than one occasion. It’s an emotional ride with 300m drops, open tombs, and a spiritual feeling I haven’t felt in even the grandest of European cathedrals and I am not even religious. Just watch the video and prepare to have your breath taken away.
