"October 2015 review from a guest from Vermont USA" , by Ellen Lake. This recent guest emphatically ended her review by saying, "Yes, make your reservation and experience this very special place. Travelling with a group of 5 women she found the hike to the Lodge enjoyable with sights of "lush scenery and donkey traffic." In describing the food she exclaimed, "how could the food be so good when there is no electricity or running water." Ellen's descriptive passage of the campfire singing at night and 'amazingly beautiful stone buildings' expresses the wonder and satisfaction of so many other Lalibela Hudad guests.

"A Fantastic Magical Stay This review's powerfull passage describes a very competent and friendly guide, Workeye taking the guest and his girls to the surrounding local villages where they met, "the most welcoming and friendly people among the most amazing scenery I have ever seen." The guest goes on to recommend the Lalibela Hudad as a 'must do' for anyone visiting Ethoipia.
