Ethiopia is what adventure travel is all about. The rock-hewn churches of Lalibela attest to the ancient Christian roots in Ethiopia – the name Ethiopia itself appears 45 times in the Bible.
High in the stunning mountain scenery of the highlands lies Lake Tana, source of the Blue Nile, which wends its way north to become the world's longest river. At the other extreme, in the sweltering Omo Valley, live remarkable tribes such as the Hamer and the Mursi, where the women wear enormous lip plates and the men practice stick fighting.
