My name is Wasihun Ayele (Kanu) I grew up on a farm in the highlands of Lalibela with my family of Thirteen. Life wasn't simple, the vast fields bore witness to our curiosity. and as kid, I spent my time with my families on the farm land which demands hard work to tilling, planting, caring, fertilising and harvesting! So, This is where I have learned to obey the rules of the land and about nature! As i got older, i went to school and got my Diploma with Tourism, Human Resource Management and French Language. Then after school, I quickly understood the importance of preparation, hard work, love and respect of our mother nature! I have worked as a trekking guide for the national park of Abuna Yosef, Bale Mountain and City guide in Addis Ababa for over 5 years, leading many treks with people from all over the world. In the meantime, I am the manager of Access Eco Trekking Ethiopia Company. I want people to understand that to work in this company mean to me is truly to applied these values on my job and to my customers! View all posts by Local Tour Ethiopia Adviser!
