I spent some time in Tigray over the weekend, visiting a lodge near Hawzen, a city about two hours drive from the regional capital, Mekelle. The nearby attractions are ancient churches, carved out of rock up in the mountains, the oldest site dating back to the 4th century, by local records. We visited three churches in total, Daniel and Miriam Korkor, as well as Abuna Yemata, which is on a different mountain. Abuna Yemata is said to be the most inaccessible church in the world, sitting on the top of a 2500m mountain. It was a really special trip, probably one of the coolest things I've done since being in Ethiopia.
