Cultural Gold Mining Route
Ethiopian Airlines has a scheduled flight to Assosa, the capital of Beni Shangul Gumuz Region. So, you can either fly or drive through the lush green landscape of the Western highlands to Benishangul and take part in the traditional gold mining practice with the Berta people. There are colorful community markets whereby the ethnic groups in the region come together to exchange their products. From here you can proceed further to the west and visit the Agnuwak and Nuer people of the Gambella region on the bank of Baro River.
