The morning a few miles drive will take you to a nearby church called Genete Mariam. This church is one of the most interesting outlying churches, a large monolith carved into a pink-tinged outcrop near the source of the Tekeze River. Supported by pillars, the church is very different from any of the excavation in Lalibela that it is not hidden within a trench, but carved openly on a rocky hilltop – though the cover of scaffolding rather detracts from the impact of seeing from afar according to tradition Genata Mariam was excavated during the reign of Yekuno Amlak, the king who ‘restored’ the Solomonic line in the early 13th century.
Genete Mariam is an ideal small village for doing some community work. We can Join one of community service projects, school renovation. Furnishing the homes of the elderly is also an ideal community work in the area. In the village, you will have the chance to see how injera(ethipian pnc cake ) is baked, local beer is brewed, and typical family coffee celebration.
Overnight at Panoramic View Hotel or Similar, Lalibela.
