Those sightseers who have some extra time in Ethiopia can go a little further and explore other places in the vicinity. Interesting places within a relatively short distance of Kelafo are Gode, 45 miles (72 kilometers) to the southeast, and Shillavo, 50 miles (80 kilometers) to the southwest.
For a low-cost outdoors activity that the whole family will enjoy, take the time to head to the region's popular open-air exhibits.
When you hear the call of the wild, do as the locals do and go hiking and mountain climbing.
The food here has its own unique flavors, so take the time to try some of the more popular local dishes. Two of the region's key cooking ingredients are niter kibbeh (clarified butter and ginger) and ayibe (cottage cheese). Gored gored (raw beef) and himbasha (bread) are much-loved regional treats to taste. To finish your Ethiopia dining experience, you can't go past popcorn. Lifter tella is a much-loved brand of beer in these parts. So find a bar, kick back and give it a try! Taste a Ambo mineral water, an non-alcoholic beverage of choice.
If you plan on arriving and departing by plane, it's good to remember that the nearest major airport is Egal International Airport, 270 miles (435 kilometers) to the north of Kelafo.
