The Bale Mountains National Park covers 1500 square miles of high-altitude plateau with volcanic peaks, alpine lakes and streams, and tropical forests. With four different ecosystems within its borders, the park offers unparalleled hiking trails for every level of traveler, as well as options for specific adventures, depending on your particular interests--birding tours, wild animal safaris, and others. The Sanetti Plateau in the Bale Mountains can be reached by foot, by mule, or by vehicle and is home to animal, plant, and bird species found nowhere else in the world. Its relative remoteness has contributed to its biodiversity and to the conservation of rare and endemic species. With its spectacular variations in landscape, habitat, and species, the Bale Mountains National Park has unusual and unique treasures for every tourist.
