After having lunch at the hotel, we will drive 35 KM to visit the majestic Blue Nile Falls. 30 KM after it exits Lake Tana, the Blue Nile plunges over a 45m-high face to form one of the most spectacular waterfall in Africa. Walking to the fall through the beautiful river gorge on the ancient bridge from the 17th century, and meeting the local people at the small villages on the way to the fall is also a great experience.

Our afternoon activity was visiting the Blue Nile Falls. This involved driving 35 kilometers, hiking along an ancient lava field – now used as pasture and agricultural land, fording the Blue Nile in a ferry, and – to get close...
...scrambling down a muddy hill and wet slippery rocks. In the rain.
It was worth it.
Back at the lodge I thought I'd throw a few casts off the rocky pier in the muddy water.
