Semien Mountains are a world Heritage Site. scenically one of the most dramatic places in the world home of the endemic wild animals, plant and birds. The dramatic topography of the Semien area is the result of the erosion of basalt lava flows which have been calculated to be nearly 3,000 meters thick. Because of the the Jagged skyline where thin slices of the plateau and isolated blocks from the volcanic cores remain standing high above the Tekeze lowlands. These were dramatically described by a nineteenth century traveler as a place where Greek gods played chess.
