It's an extinct volcano, maybe two hours driving from Addis, but visible from there. There's a really bad road to the top, only for very tough 4x4s, and a village by the top, a church, a lake, and a beautiful forest around, unfortunately partially burned. The view is from the rim towards the big lakes somewhere in the south or east. It's a peaceful place. There's also a historical story - the Communist leaders were hiding there after their fall.
