Addis Ababa, the ‘new flower’ in Amharic is nestled under the sacred mountain of Entoto. Thought to be a key reason for establishing the city where it is, it is a dominant feature on the skyline. The mountain, already rising from a city of high altitude, has its summit at around 3100m, enough of an altitude to make any coastal dweller puff and heave with every step. To add to the allure of the mountain, there are several orthodox churches and monasteries with an ancient history behind them.
