Nature from the Veiled Ancient Era.

The Hidden Treasure at the Mountain's Shoulder. 

This place is the work area of so many endeavours; Entoto's High plateau appears among adorable Juniper hills and dreamlike meadows. Ultimately, beyond the horizon of golden fields, this landscape of forgotten dreams reveals its southern border in the abyss Bees' Cliff (14). Here it shows very soon; the beautiful path (42) to Entoto Natural Park (Nursery) 34, where the massive work has elapsed with nature restoration for many years.  

A Park of Serenity and Resounding Joy
Entoto Natural Park is a unique place to discover the most breathtaking ancient mountain nature with streams flowing from clear springs and waterfalls. Surprises here are regular with both exciting places for relaxation and fantastic water activities. Winding streams here gently curl and are then hidden mysteriously in high stone arches. Enclosed by Junipers' fragrance, the view of the Capital opens up in delight through dizzying ravines and waterfalls. Experience the park with its ability to produce a genuine and powerful creative joy where many families can reunite and rejoice in being free from stress and regaining health and create irresistible inspiration.

Geographical Situation 
Addis Ababa is situated 9° north of the equator in central Ethiopia. On the mountain of Entoto, the Park area extends from the northern edge of the city, at an altitude of 2 600m and further north over the mountain crest at almost 3 100 m. There is a splendid outlook over the sprawling city and the five high solitary mountains from several spots, in the southwest to the southeast (Menagesha, Wachecha, Furi Zukuala and Yerer).

Shero Meda (Shiromeda) Community.
The nearest location to the guest house, hotel, and amenities for tourism is the Shero Meda (Shiromeda) community. However, this community and its central station just below the Park's threshold are both quite extensive. Furthermore, this community's possibilities for accommodations include an extent clearly south, north and to the east of this Shero Meda (Shiromeda) indication on this satellite image.

Accommodations North of Shero Meda (Shiromeda)
The northern Shero Meda district offers some itineraries and accommodations within a mile or more to the north and east of the Shero Meda (Shiromeda) community. However, just on the mountain above Shero Meda is Entoto Park (Z), with many newly inaugurated and completely exceptional accommodations.

Shero Meda (Shiromeda) Community. The nearest location to the guest house, hotel, and amenities for tourism is the Shero Meda (Shiromeda) community. However, this community and its central station just below the Park's threshold are both quite extensive. Furthermore, this community's possibilities for accommodations include an extent clearly south, north and to the east of this Shero Meda (Shiromeda) indication on this satellite image.

Shero Meda (Shiromeda) - Central Station for Bus and Taxi
Shero Meda (Shiromeda) also allows the most convenient access to Entoto Maryam (43), located on Entoto's plateau. This community in the northern district of the Capital offers here a central station for taxi and bus services to Entoto Park (Z), Entoto Maryam (43) and Entoto Kidane Mehret (1). However, the town and station Shero Meda is close enough to Entoto Kidane Mehret (1) to offer a pleasant walk to Entoto Natural Park.

Accommodations Towards the Mountain.
Continuing up to the mountain massif and Entoto Natural Park, this offers an exclusive selection of accommodations. As the area is in progress, it is an excellent opportunity for restaurants, cafes in Entoto Kidane Mehret (1) and even hotels up to some mile north and east of Shero Meda's (Shiromeda) centre, shown in the links just below.

EECMY Entoto Guesthouse  Ababa's Villa  
Entoto Park (Z) and the Citadel of Dreams.
The historical Entoto mountain massif includes now the newly inaugurated Entoto Park (Z), inviting the entire family's expectations to spend time in the pleasant leisure with gardens or exploring many highly inspiring activities.  Here, the landscape's high drama constitutes the adventure's core to be incredibly close with breathtaking miles of mountain ranges and dagger-deep ravines.  The Capital is immediate here but still surprisingly remote through the site's elevated rocky ledge.

Culture, Adventure and Activities of Entoto Park (Z).
Seductively Cosy Mountain Palaces.
Dramatically elevated buildings constitute the new Entoto Park (Z) and form the amazing mountain-dwelling for the whole family's interest in comfort and high-spirited culture. The dramatic and historical Entoto mountain massif includes now the newly inaugurated Entoto Park (Z), inviting the entire family's expectations to spend time in the pleasant leisure with gardens or exploring many highly inspiring activities.  Here, the landscape's high drama constitutes the adventure's core to be incredibly close with breathtaking miles of mountain ranges and dagger-deep ravines.  The Capital is immediate here but still surprisingly remote through the site's elevated rocky ledge.  This combination of contrast with the Capital and its high mountain park is genuinely unique globally and thus provided the basis for developing the place into a centre for culture and activities.

Entoto Kidane Mehret [1]
Community (1) Sanctuary (32) and Sacred Water (31)
Entoto Kidane Mehret (1) choice as a more historical base for further exploration within the wilderness and canyon routes of the Park is natural because both municipal buses and taxis regularly have this place as the final location.

A Mountain-based Station for Bus and Taxi.
Although Entoto Kidane Mehret is quite highly located and appears distant due to its height above the Capital, it's equipped with a restaurant and a station for regular bus and taxi traffic. This quaint town's structure creates here a harmonic embrace of the extensive and impressive Entoto Kidane Mehret Church (32), Monastery and Sacred water source (31)Juniperus procera Forest (indigenous) 30. The choice of Entoto Kidane Mehret as a central base for further exploration of the Park is natural because both the Capital's buses and local taxis regularly have this place as the final location. Here they are waiting in the shade of large native trees. 

Store for picnic provisions.
For picnic's needs, exist a store at Entoto Kidane Mehret Sanctuary (32) and community (1). The public coaches and taxis frequently come to Entoto Kidane Mehret before they turn downhill and soon arrive in the Shero Meda (Shiromeda) station and society and further the more central part of the Capital.

Restaurants and Accommadation.
Continuing up towards the mountainside, above the northern outskirt of  Sheromeda and closer to Entoto Kidane Mehret (32), this offers a specific selection of accommodations. Since the landscape is delightfully inviting, it is an excellent opportunity for restaurants in Entoto Kidane Mehret (1), including hotels or guest-houses up to some mile north of Shero Meda's (Shiromeda) centre.

Entoto Maryam Church (43), Former Capital, Emperor Palace, Museum.
Entoto Maryam (43) is the location for the old Capital with both museums and historic buildings. This historic site of the previous Capital offers unique architecture and an excellent opportunity for leisurely walks.

The lower part of the Park adjoins Addis Ababa's northern outskirts, at the district known as Shero Meda (Shiromeda). 
Coming from the central parts of the city, the Entoto Avenue leads up to the school of Kuskuam in the north of Shero Meda and further along the border of the Park to the Church of Entoto Maryam (Håkan Blanck and Pia Englund, Entoto Natural Park 1995).

Elevated Protectorate. 
The society Entoto Kidane Mehret (1) is a very dedicated and appealing mountain town. Still, it should indeed more precisely be described as a profoundly religious Sanctuary and Protectorate of Nature and Inhabitants. For a long time, this has been a religious protectorate of Entoto's Nature, thus gaining unique and profound protection that has been deeply associated with religious devotion and conviction. 

The New Facilities of Entoto Park (Z).
The facilities of Entoto Park (Z) are located just below the Entoto Maryam (43). These newly built facilities should inform the regulations for special open hours of this very modern and extended centre for Entertainment, Culture, Art, Sport Activities and Breathtaking Highlands views of Nature and mountains.
