Sjjerpa Fenta


Greetings, I'm Fentahun, commonly known as Fenta. I came into the world in 1989 in a village nestled within the Simien Mountains National Park, and I've cherished the beauty of this region throughout my entire life. My village, Ambaras, is close to Gich, serving as one of the mountain camps. However, at the age of 12, after completing my elementary education, I relocated to Debark, which is now the location of the national park head office.

I'm an established and licensed tour guide and a native of the Simien mountains. I bring you a unique perspective to the business, specializing in the organization and personal guidance of treks. While I excel in mountain trekking, I also curate tours to various regions across Ethiopia, encompassing destinations such as Lalibela, Axum, Gondar, Bahir Dar, Tigray churches, Omo Valley, Danakil Depression, and beyond.
