Simien Mountains National Park was established
in 1969. The park is one of numerous national parks in Ethiopia.

The park is located in the northern (Simien) reaches of the Gondar Zone within the Amhara Region. The park’s territory covers the entire Simien Mountains that also include the Ras Dashan, the high- est point in Ethiopia. Standing at a height of 4,550 meters, the Ras Dashan is also the 10 highest peak in Africa.

Simien Mountains National Park was one of the first sites in Ethio- pia to be added to the World Herit- age Site list by UNESCO in 1978, however, the park has witnessed an unprecedented decline of some of its characteristic native species that in 1996, the park was added to the list of World Heritage Sites in Danger.
