Bale Mountains National Park

baleBale Mountains National Park located southeast Ethiopia, covers about 2,200 square kilometers of the Bale Mountains to the west and southwest of Goba in the Bale Zone.it is gate way for thrilling wildlife and stunning scenery.

The Bale Mountains, with their vast moorlands – the lower reaches covered with St. John’s wort- and their extensive heath land, virgin woodlands, pristine mountain streams and alpine climate remain an untouched and beautiful world. Rising to a height of more than 4,000 meters, the range borders Ethiopia’s southern highlands, whose highest peak, Mount Tullu Deemtu, stands at 4,377 meters.

 

The establishment of the 2,400-square-kilometer Bale Mountains National Parke was to the survival of the mountain nyala, Menelik’s bush buck and the endangered Ethiopian wolf. This wolf is one of the most colorful members of the dog family and more abundant here than anywhere else in Ethiopia. All three endemic animals thrive in this environment, the nyala in particular often being seen in large numbers. The Bale Mountains offer some fine high-altitude horse and foot trekking, and the streams of the park
