Blue Nile Falls

Please look at the other Highlights as well.

Scroll down to the end of this page to do so.

These Falls are situated on the Blue Nile River.
It is known as “Tis Abay” in Amharic meaning "smoking water".
The falls are considered one of Ethiopia's best known tourist attractions.

The falls are estimated to be between 37 and 45 metres high, consisting of four streams that originally varied from a trickle in the dry season to over 400 metres wide in the rainy season.

Regulation of Lake Tana now reduces the variation somewhat, and since 2003 a hydro-electric station has taken much of the flow out of the falls except during the rainy season.
