Day 1: Today we will ride through the magnificent Menagesha National Forest at altitudes ranging from 2,300 to 3,000 meters in a mix of road and off-road riding. On the way to Welisso we will stop at the Wonchi Crater Lake an extinct volcano that reaches 3,386 meters. 180 Km from Addis we will reach Welisso which will be our stop for the night. Here we can see fine examples of Gurage homes with roofs that almost touch the ground on each side. Welisso is known mostly for its hot spring, the water of which is regarded as holy by Ethiopian Christians and a relaxing swim can be taken at a naturally heated swimming pool in one of the local hotels.
Day 2: We will take a different road on the way back to Addis where the road between Welkite and Hosaina offers dramatic views of the highland plateaus and surrounding valleys.
