Near Yerga Alem, we had to wait a day to get into Aregash Lodge (an overbooking issue). Our local guides arranged for us to stay at Furra Institute of Developmental Studies for that night, about 4 km from Aregash (sorry I can’t be more specific about the location). Our accomodations seemed to be a dormitory of some sort, but were clean. comfortable and modern. At Birr 115 per night, many Western travelers will greatly appreciate the accomodations at Furra, if they are available to the general public.
