When hiking in Simien Mountains we met a lot of kids selling home made hats and other souvenirs that they have made. The quality of the products vary, but buying is a good way of supporting the villages in the area.
What to pay: Depends on your ability to bargin.
What to buy: Debark is a poor small village! There are not too many things to buy. Even food is not available in wide variety. It’s a good idea to stock up in Gondar and bring it to here. It s also cheaper in Gondar because of lower transport costs!
The local people from Gich village sell eggs and chickens. Contact them in the evening and they bring egg for breakfast.
What to pay: 1,5 Birrs pr egg.
