The scenery is diversely beautiful. Simplified, the landscapes could be divided into highlands, lowlands, undulating plains, valleys and desert areas. In reality such a division is not so clear-cut. Mountain ranges plunge to valley floors. Rivers, lakes, waterfalls abound. Forests give way to savanna. Grasslands merge into deserts. You can almost choose your own scenery! The hilly rugged settings of northern Ethiopia contrast sharply with green tablelands at the center and the lush wooded forests of Illubabor in the western part.
