Day Tour in Adadi Mariam
It will be a great day out of Addis Ababa especially on Thursdays and Sundays as there is a weekly held cultural market of the locals on those days.
This is an ideal tour for visitors who want to escape the busy city life and experience the authentic life of the country side people.
With the help of someone who knows the area well you will have a local family visit and attend a typical Ethiopian Coffee Ceremony which gives visitors to share experiences and interact with locals.
If time allows you may have a short visit of the archaeological site of Melka Kunture on the way back to Addis Ababa at the town of Awash Melka.
If you are taking this tour on Thursday or Sunday, there is an interesting colorful cultural market of the Oromo people at the small town of Adadi, and make sure you stop at Adadi Mariam church and the market first before you drive to Tiya. Because the market would not be at its best if you are arriving later.
Enjoy your tour!!
