The Bale Mountains stand for:  vast moorlands , lower reaches covered with St. John's wort, extensive heathland, virgin woodlands, pristine mountain streams and alpine climate.
It remains an untouched and beautiful world,rising to a height of  more than 4,000 meters.

The establishment  of the 2,400-square-kilometre Bale Mountains National Park was crucial to the survival of the mountain nyala, Menelik's bushbuck and the Simien red fox.

The Bale Mountains offer some fine high-altitude horse and foot trekking, and the streams of the park - which become important rivers further downstream - are well-stocked with rainbow and brown trout.

Bale Mountains National Park is the largest area of Afro-Alpine habitat in Africa.
It gives the visitor opportunities for unsurpassed mountain walking, horse trekking and  scenic driving.
Meanwhile you get the chance to view many of Ethiopia's endemic mammals, in particular the Mountain Nyala and Semien Fox, and birds, such as the Thick-billed Raven, Wattled Ibis, Blue-winged Goose, and Rouget's Rail.
