Our name

The manager and tour operator of this company, Eyayaw Biru, was born and grew up near to Yemrehana Kristos in the mountains.

Yemrehana Kristos is a built up church under a huge basaltic cave located about 42km northeast of Lalibela, on a mountain ridge with an altitude of 2681 metres whose peak is mount Abune Joseph (4190 meters above sea level).

According to traditional accounts, it was built by one of the renowned Zagwe Kings, Yemrehana Kristos. It was apparently the first rock-church in the Lastsa area. The exact date of construction is not clearly known.

Hence the name of our Tour Company, linking you the tourist into the History of Ethiopia and my own birth place.
