Blue Nile Gorge

The Blue Nile Gorge is located 130km north of Addis Ababa and is the second largest gorge in the world after the Grand Canyon in the U.S. For a million years the Blue Nile has been carving this 1,000m deep, nearly 20km wide and over 600km long gash through the Ethiopian Highlands. It is an enormous semicircle that heads first south, slowly turns west, and finally swings northwards as it leaves The hills, spilling into the flat plains bordering Sudan. Already the drive provides you an amazing view. From the highlands huge rivers pour into the gorge and make the Blue Nile to the big river for which it is known. The whole region convinces with its natural beauty and is famous for its wide variety of birds.
