Is June a good time to visit Ethiopia?

June is typically not a great month to visit Ethiopia. The northern circuit is characterised by cloudy skies and heavy downpours, and temperatures are colder than other times of year. 

The Omo Valley is a good place to be, as this part of the country experiences an earlier rainy season from April to May, meaning by June temperatures are rising again and skies are blue. It can get quite hot!

You will want to avoid the Danakil Depression from June to September as temperatures can become unbearably hot (think 40°C+). 

The Gheralta Mountains are nice this time of year, the flowers are often in full bloom which makes the already stunning landscapes even more extraordinary, and its a great time for community trekking in the cliffs of Tigray, away from it all...
