Trek for 2.5 hours to 500m high Jinbar waterfall. Along the way you will observe the splendid landscape and different kinds of flowers and trees. There is also a possibility to see a klipspringer and mini bushbuck. There are leopards in the area but they are rarely seen, however maybe you’ll be one of the lucky ones! Of course the delightful gelada baboons are always around. After lunch by the waterfall the 4×4 picks us up to drive back to Gondar .
