All about the 8 Days – Omo Valley Tour.

Ethiopia’s Omo Valley region is one of the most remote parts of this incredible country. Omo Valley is located in the Southern part of Ethiopia, this distant region feels like a world away from Northern Ethiopia – with a rural and tropical feel, it was more reminiscent of sub-Saharan Africa than anywhere else in the country. In this Unique place of the country, multiple and strong indigenous cultures co-exist. On this cultural tour, you have the opportunities to visit various busy local markets, different ethnic groups with different customs, rites, rituals, architecture, and dress, a raw and fresh natural world, and the special “Bull-Jumping” ceremony, in which a Hummer’s boy will be transferred into Adulthood.
