Lalibela is approximately 2500m above sea level which is rather high but most standards and as we found rather lacking in oxygen levels. So when walking between the churches do not be surprised that one's lungs take a bit of strain, just ask your guide for a minute or two's rest and you will start feeling good again. Lalibela is not the place to go for a morning run unless you are into high altitude training.
This page is all about the scenery surrounding the town, from vistas out onto the mountains and valleys to the people and their markets.
All photographs have been taken by us here at Uyaphi.com with the sole purpose of showcasing Lalibela the town from our point of view.
