Asela Vacations

Independent types who prefer destinations that are well and truly off the mass-tourism radar, should make tracks to Asela and the mountains, valleys and tablelands of the Ethiopia region.

Addis Ababa, the national capital, is located 80 miles (129 kilometers) to the north of Asela.

No two towns or cities are ever quite the same; each is graced with its own special magic. So, be sure to stop by a couple of the other areas around Asela. Shire and Debre Zeyit are two more places worth visiting while you're in Ethiopia.

On a fine day, head outdoors to explore Ethiopia's open-air exhibits.

Experience a side of the region most visitors don't see by spending time with a knowledgeable local on one of the wildlife safaris and wildlife spotting tours.

Learn about the food options in Ethiopia by sampling typical local dishes. You'll discover niter kibbeh (clarified butter and ginger) and ayibe (cottage cheese) are regularly used elements of typical local dishes. Taste some popular menu items such as gored gored (raw beef) and himbasha (bread). Popcorn is a typical dessert in these parts. Kick back and enjoy a. While you are here. This is one of the region's best beers. To wrap up your dining experience, order Ambo mineral water. It is a common non-alcoholic drink here.

Even the best vacation can't go on forever, so when it's time go home, you'll find the nearest major airport in Addis Ababa, 75 miles (121 kilometers) to the north.
