Lake Tana is truly memorable experience for visitors from near and far. The first view will take your breath away: a vast expanse of water stretching as far as the horizon to form Ethiopia’s largest lake. The “Smoking Water” falls of the Blue Nile are one of the most spectacular sights on the whole of the Nile system. The Blue Nile leaves Lake Tana and travels for around 30 km through papyrus thickets and fields before plunging over a sheer chasm, cascading 45 meters and thundering onto the bare rocks below.
A short walk to this church to see yet more wonderful wall paintings and to be bothered by all the locals to buy a small papyrus model of a real papyrus boat."
"The high interior walls of the main church are completely covered with art work graphically depicting an array of Biblical scenes, showing a literal interpretation of the Bible.
