Travel Tips from people who've been to Lalibela
When in  Lalibela visit the rock-hewn church of Yemrehanna Kristos, 35km from Lalibela. The setting is spectacular, it is basically floating on water on wooden panels in a cave on a cliff. It actually predates the churches in Lalibela and at the back of the church there are hundreds of piled up mummified corpses!
