Mount Abuna Yosef is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 4.199m (13,776ft) above the sea level, located in the Semien Wollo Zone of the Amhara Region, in Ethiopia. It’s one of the highest roads of Africa.
The road to the summit, located within the Ethiopian Highlands, is totally unpaved. Menacing desert terrain with numerous steep, rocky climbs. Large, sharp rocks require tight maneuvering, increasing the likelihood of tire damage. High clearance, skid plates and differential lockers required. No stock vehicles. Facilities like electricity, medical aid, hot running water, western toilets etc. are rare to find. The summit hosts a mountain hut: Agaw Beret Community Guesthouse.
