Bujet op reis ubuntopia

Can you go to Gish Abay yourself?

Yes, of course! It’s not just Ethiopians who visit this special village in Gondar; people also come from all over the world. Many people prefer to trek to Gish Abay because they get the chance to reflect. They consider the hike to be more important than the actual visit to the source of the Blue Nile. Others walk there because they hope to receive healing during the trek.

In any case, Bujet and her mother could stay there for seven days, in addition to the gruelling walk. Once they arrive at their destination, the visitors can rest and take baths. Many of them fill jerry cans and bottles with the water from the source. That way, they can bring some home with them. Smart eh!
