The average temperature in Addis Ababa is 16.3°C. However, since the temperature is falling with increasing altitude, the top of the Park is estimated to be about 12°C. The wind can also be strong, so the climate can be pretty harsh, especially during the rains and in the higher parts. Water: Dri...

The commonly occurring check dams represent an opportunity to recreate an environment that fits almost idealistically for both people and Nature. For example, placing a building like Fasilides Bath next to a stream on the high plateau would provide Nature with a fantastic water supply. However, i...

Nature from the Veiled Ancient Era.

The Hidden Treasure at the Mountain's Shoulder. 

This place is the work area of 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 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. Enclosed by Junipers' fragrance, the view of the Capital opens up in delight through dizzying ravines and waterfalls. Winding streams gently curl and are then hidden mysteriously in high stone arches. Surprises are regular with both exciting places for relaxation and fantastic water activities. 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 creating irresistible inspiration.

Geographical Situation 
Addis Ababa is situated 9° north of the equator in central Ethiopia. The Park area extends from the city's northern edge, 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, from 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 pretty extensive. Furthermore, this community's possibilities for accommodations include an extent south, north, and 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 pretty extensive. Furthermore, this community's possibilities for accommodations include an extent south, north, and 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 progresses, 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) 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 buses and Taxis
Entoto Kidane Mehret is quite highly located and appears distant due to its height above the Capital; and despite its dramatic site, well equipped with restaurants 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 old Capital's location with museums and historic buildings. This place is charmingly convenient in every direction, with traditional facilities at this landmark mountain crest and mountain plateau with its former Capital. 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, 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. 
Entoto Kidane Mehret (1) society is a very dedicated and appealing mountain town. Still, it appears indeed more precisely 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 together with religious devotion and conviction. 

The New Facilities of Entoto Park (Z).
Entoto Park (Z) facilities adorn the mountainside 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.
