Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The only stand-alone guide to Ethiopia's top visitor attractions, Ethiopia Highlights condenses Philip Briggs extensive knowledge into a concise handbook for short stay visitors. Top sites include the worlds tallest monolithic stelae at Axum, the 2,500-year-old ruined temple at Yeha, the mystical and mediaeval rock-carved churches of Lalibela, the decorously painted monasteries of Lake Tana, and the Camelot-like castles of Gondar. Featuring full-color photos throughout, this book serves equally as a holiday planner and a travel companion.
