BAHIR DAR is a pleasant city situated at the eastern shore of LAKE TANA, the largest lake in Ethiopia. The ancient island monasteries on the lake are known for their very old treasures and parchment. They have been the site of pre-Christian shrine. The BLUE NILE FALLS is one of the most spectacular falls in Africa. The thunderous noise and the rainbow formations combined with the luscious vegetation teems and variety of bird lives make it the most impassive falls amongst the whole Nile Rive.
