Ticket price increase at Fasil Ghebbi, Gondar

Thanks to Marco of Simien EcoTours for this important update:

The ETOA (Ethiopian Tour Operator Association) has just informed us about an increase in the ticket price to visit the Fasil Ghebbi and associated sites in Gondar as of February 2016 . The current fee of 200 Birr (roughly US$9.50) will increase to 500 Birr (US$24). The new ticket  will be valid for 2 days and covers both the Fasil Ghebbi  and Fasil’s bath, but not churches such as Debre Birhan Selassie or Kuskuam.

    Seems like Ethiopia’s really decided to go for the “maximize short run profit” approach to tourism, seemingly unawares that increasing ticket prices everywhere is going to scare people away. Thanks for the update.
