The Entoto Mountains that rises up to 3,300 feet above sea level. You can take a bus or taxi to the top, or hike, as many well-conditioned travelers do. On the mountain, you the first churches of Addis Ababa called St. Mary and St. Raguel, as well as smaller palace of Menelik the II, attract a lot of attention. Take your time walking around on the top of the mountain, and try to visit some of the outlying rural villages if possible.

Menelik II and Queen Taitu conceived the idea of Addis Ababa at the top of the Entoto Mountains. Enjoy a timeless, beautiful view--and learn more about the layout of the capital from such a vantage.
