Considered more as a point of departure for the southern extremities of Ethiopia, including the Omo Valley, the city of Arba Minch’s is full of natural wonder and beauty. The city which nestled on the shores of Abaya Lake got its name from the numerous springs that feed a groundwater forest, and the Kulfo River, which drains into Lake Chamo. The area is rich in many tiny springs that bubble up from the ground. You can see many of them as you hike through Nechisar National Park. Abra Minch sits on the edge of Nech Sar National Park, which houses Lake Chamo and Abaya, the second biggest by surface area in Ethiopia, as well as beautiful mountain landscapes and forests, including God’s Bridge, a mountainous area of dense acacia scrub separating the two lakes.
