the world's most spectacular roads

Lalibela Road

Lalibela is a town in northern Ethiopia, known for its monolithic churches, at an elevation of 2.500m (8,202ft) above the sea level, located in the Semien Wollo Zone. 

Some road sections may require a high clearance 4WD vehicle, in four-wheel-drive, driven by a driver experienced in 4WD drive techniques to drive the road without getting stuck. By road there are three approaches to Lalibela, the most popular and easiest of which is the rough 120 km road from Woldia, a trip that can take between four to six hours. This road is covered by daily buses and land cruisers. 
There are 2 routes more, both in gravel. The second route is from the west, branching from the main road between Bahar Dar and Gondar at Werota. From Bahar Dar and Gondar you can reach Debre Tabor in a day, then the next day catch a bus to Dilb, and the following day join a vehicle heading from Woldia to Lalibela. The third route approaches from the north along the road that connects Axum to Lalibela via Adwa, Abi Aday and Sekota. Without a private vehicle you may find it difficult to complete the 130km stretch between Sekota and Lalibela.
