Debre Damo Monastery
Join the faithful who have made the journey for over a thousand years to Ethiopia's Debre Damo Monastery. Having once served as a royal prison, the structure sits at an elevation of 2,216 meters (~ 7,270 ft) above sea level, perched upon a lonely plateau amongst the stark mountains of Northern Ethiopia and is only accessible by rope via a sheer cliff. But once you're inside, you'll begin to appreciate why this place has become one of the greatest repositories of religious manuscripts to be found anywhere in the world. It's like an ancient Fort Knox with a lot more style.
