The Entoto Mountains (also called the Entoto Hills) lie north of Addis Ababa (capital of Ethiopia), in the Oromia Region.
Mount Entoto is part of the Entoto mountain chain, reaching 3,200 meters above sea level.
It is also a historical place where Menelik II dwelled and established his palace, when he came from Ankober and founded Addis Ababa. Established on these remarkable peaks, Addis Ababa is the highest capital in Africa. It is considered a sacred location and holds many monasteries.
They are known for their views over the capital, and are the location for Addis Ababa’s immediate predecessor as capital.
These mountains are home to:
• numerous churches,
