The location is unbeatable spectacular, staff super friendly, food is also good! all in all an incredible experience that is so worth it even if you just do it in a day-trip from Lalibela, but I do recommend spending the night!
A great lodge for a true getaway. The scenery is simply spectacular throughout the entire property, given it sits very high on a small plateau. Baboons abound and make for quite the experience when having a morning coffee or evening tea.
I spent 3 nights in Hudad Lodge and feel like a new man! This is the most tranquil and beautiful place I have ever stayed... Truly breathtaking. You can see baboons whenever you want and get really close to them... The views are incredible... The people are lovely...
My hike up to hudad via asheten maryam church took around 4 hours. I had an excellent guide, thomas, who let me walk at my own pace and gave interesting facts. At hudad we were rewarded with breathtaking 360 views and a delicious lunch - and coffee of course.
Not an easy way to get there - travel light although the guides will help with your backpack if needed. But if you get there - it is unique! We were the night alone in the whole compound with our guide, cook and the guards. And the monkeys :-)
