Bale Mountains National Park:  From the largest remaining montane forest, to the biggest high-altitude plateau in Africa, this national park has many to offer to tourists that love wild spaces, treking and wildlfie watching. Tourism in Bale is on the increase, contributing to community associations of guides, horse lenders and porters, and to local businesses, but its potential remains unfulfilled.

Simien Mountains National Park: Visitors to the have increased from 655 in 1999 to about 7,000 in 2007, and a newly established private lodge reported an annual 23% increment in users from 2005 to 2010, mainly attracted by the endemic wildlife species such as the endangered walia ibex , Ethiopian wolf and gelada baboon (Lodge Manager, pers. comm.).

Guassa-Menz and Abuna Yoseph: In Guassa-Menz, a community-based initiative is already attracting visitors and it provides locals with a tangible income and an incentive to conserve this Afroalpine area. According to the record book of the Guassa Community Conservation Association, the total number of visitors was 23 in 2009 and 37 in 2010 (but the actual number was higher).  Community-based tourism is also growing in Abuna Yoseph, near Lalibela, providing tourists with the opportunity to combine the historic route with mountain trekking and sightings of endemic wildlife including Ethiopian wolves and gelada baboons.
