    Mules for transport

    Mules to ride

    It possible to hire mules to ride. Hiking in this altitude is very hard and an good alternative is to ride a mule. The mules will sometimes take different routes than when you're hiking. If you take the road you miss out on the best views.

    Loading the mules

    Mules can be hired for transport of luggage, tents and food. For each mule you need a driver. They will load and unload the mule and look after them. The mules will take a different route than you and will be in the camp when you get there. The price for mule is 20 birrs and the same for the driver. Check the condition of the mules before hiring them, they may limp or have cuts and sores.

    Connection to Aksum

    by frockland Written Sep 4, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    To travel to Aksum in one day means to hop onto the first bus going north to Shire. It’s a long ride through a wild and dramatic landscape that takes about eight hours. This means you will arrive in Shire in the late afternoon. If you want to proceed to Aksum the only way is to take a minibus. The price is about 15 -20 Birr depending on your bargaining skills. Its an 90 minutes bus ride.

    The bus

    by frockland Written Aug 31, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Its only one road passing through Debark and usually only two busses go here in either direction daily. Often these busses are full. To be sure to find a seat on a bus heading north its possible to find somebody to go to Gondar the day before and buy tickets for you. The National Park Officers will help in finding some body.

    When the bus rattles into the village the conductor jumps out of it and starts selling tickets immediately. Probably you need someone to help you with buying them. The price to Shire is 37 Birr and the commission will be 3 Birr. Its worth making use of it. The first bus coming from Gondar arrives at about 9 – 9.30 am.
