Day Trips: Churches & Monasteries
Many fascinating churches and monasteries lie in the stunning countryside within a day’s striking distance of Lalibela. They vary greatly in style, design and age and offer a different experience from the churches in town. Tucked away and still absent from most modern maps, many require a guide to find them. The journey, whether by foot, mule or vehicle, to these sites is rewarding. If you didn’t arrive in Lalibela with a 4WD and driver, ask your hotel or guide about renting one.
