In the morning at around 8am we trek to Geech on the way we visit
where Jinbar waterfall plunges in to the Abyss. The area is also a great spot
to see the Gelada Baboons.
We have a magnificent 7 - 8 hours trek to Chennek in route through Imet Gogo (3,926m) a place where nothing can block us from watching the spectacular views of the landscapes and Valleys, and hike to Innateye Valley (4,070m). After lunch we descend to Chennek.
