Festival of Timket is one Ethiopian festival not to be missed.. and Gondar is one of the best places to experience it.
The festival is the Ethiopian Orthodox celebration of Epiphany and venerates Christ’s baptism in the River Jordan. It is regarded as one of the most colourful festivals of the Ethiopian Orthodox year. The highlights of the festival are the movement of the Tabots, a model of the Ark of the Covenant, from every local Ethiopian Orthodox church altar to one meeting place at Fasilides’ Bath. It is also at the bath where young boys will leap into the large pool in a ritual reenactment of baptism.
This tour will take place from January 19th – January 21st, 2016. We will fly up and back from Addis Ababa to Gondar.
