Korkor Lodge

Korkor Lodge

In the heart of Tigray with incredible views and access to many sites

Ethiopia's remote north where ancient culture and geography collide

The perfect location to explore rock hewn churches and to venture to the Danakil Depression

Nestled in the foothills of the Tigray region, Korkor Lodge is a charming eco-lodge surrounded by incredible open vistas overlooking the vertical cliffs and spires of the Gheralta Mountains. It is the perfect location to explore local biblical, historical and cultural interests including Abuna Yemata Guh.

The twelve bungalows, crafted to mimic the traditional Tigrinia building style, are set in spacious landscaped gardens with incredible panoramic views of the mountain range from their huge glass windows and shaded verandas. All rooms offer large living spaces, including king sized beds and en-suite bathrooms. Korkor is a quintessential eco-lodge, placing the environment first, but the elegance of service creates an aura of luxury, capturing visitors hearts.

Excursions to the vast, extreme climate of the Danakil Depression are amazing if you're looking for otherworldly raw adventure. The jewels in the crown are the ancient rock church excursions, with over 140 churches and archaeological sites guests can gain an insight into the incredible history, deep and rich spiritual culture of the Ethiopian Orthodox Christians, visiting some of the most important sites with knowledgeable guides familiar with the history and formalities of the shrines.
