    Stop At: Portuguese Bridge, Near the Blue Nile Water Fall, Debre Libanos Ethiopia

    According to some, it was built in the 16th century by Portuguese; others say that it was built by Ras Darge (who was Menelik’s uncle) in the 19th century. After crossing the bridge, go to your right by the side of the river until you reach on a large rock suitable to view the 600m waterfall. Even though the best time to see this is in the Ethiopian rainy season (July-September), the view still around this area is magnificent and you find the endemic Gelada baboon or the Lion monkey.
