    I look forward to your Bale Mountains adventure. It will be like “old home week” for me. I lived in Bale Province for two years in the 1960s. It was very dangerous in the mountains then due to the civil war. I hope you post a photo or two of Goba, my former hometown.

      It is good to hear from your Karl. I have been in Goba as well as it is a base to explore The Bale Mountains and I see what I can do so that you can re-live your memories. Thank your for stopping by.

    Howdie Sara, a friend of mine and me 8 (2 german males) intend to travel to Bale Mountains in October. Can you please give us some hints how to reach this area and which kind of accomodation is available. We normally carry our own tent and sleeping bags. 5 years ago I visited Siemien Moutains on a 4day trip. So one of us has some ethiopian experience.
    Best regards
    Manfred & Brendan

      Hi Manfred & Brendan,

      Thank you for stopping by. To answer your question, there are two ways to reach the Bale Mountains but I suggest for you to take the one via Shashemene as it allows first time visitors to see the Rift Valley lakes dotted along the way. I suggest you use the town Goba as the base to visit the Bale Mountains and for accommodation I suggest the Goba Wabe Shebelle Hotel. You can reach via public transport or by renting private vehicle. I also suggest you organize your visit to the Bale Mountains before you arrive via tour operators so that you can work out on details before hand. I do really hope it helps.

      Good Luck!
