Day 2 - Sankaber-Geech Camp.

From Sankaber Camp the path to Geech Camp will stretch for approximately twelve kilometers. (5-6hrs) the initial stages of this path lead through extensive areas of highland grasslands and heather forests. This path offers some of the most impressive views of the escarpment. One of the best views is the Jinbar Wenz waterfall which plummets down the Geech Abyss.

After descending down to the Jinbar Wenz River a short ascent remains to Gich village. In this area, cultivation is done in a two-year cycle.One side of the valley is planted whilst the other side lies fallow. You will notice extensive soil erosion in this area as a result of the combination of such factors as slope steepness, cultivation, overgrazing, erosive rainfall and limited land resources. We pause in Geech village as we are invited into one of the local houses for a coffee ceremony. Here you will participate in this very important social tradition of Ethiopia as well as gain an insight into the traditional lifestyle.Just above the village is the Geech composite. The campsite has great views of the mountains and is characterized by giant Lobelia plants. These plants can grow up to 10 meters in height and may live for as long as twenty years, at which point they first flower before dying….
