Flora and Fauna
Ethiopia is among the six biodiversity regions of the world where two of the twenty five biodiversity hotspots are located here. Such as the Horn of Africa Biodiversity Hotspots and Eastern Afromontane Biodiversity Hotspots, and they provide the opportunity of having considerable amount of flora and fauna endemism. As a day’s journey the travelers may pass from Tropical to almost Alpine conditions of climate, so great also is the range of the flora and fauna. In the valleys and lowlands the vegetation is dense, but the general appearance of the plateaus is of a comparatively bare country, with trees and bushes thinly scattered over it. The glens and ravines on the hillside are often thickly wooded, and offer a delightful contrast to the downs.
