I had to skip the Simien Mountains in order to be somewhere else, but it’s impressive what I saw from the Kosoye viewpoint. Kosoye’s half day trip can be arranged through many operators for Birr 400 for the car, you’ll see baboons, some other monkeys (Colubus?) and the views are just stunning. Make sure you get your operator to spell it out for you that everything is included in their costs so you don’t have to pay for the scout, another useless person that follows you around and does nothing, shepherds, kids, landowners, donkeys, baboons etc. Let the operator/guide tip them if they want.
