Blue Nile Gorge

 

 Attraction Blue Nile GorgeThe Blue Nile has a total length of 1,450 kilometers (900 mi), of which 800 km (500 mi) are inside Ethiopia. The Blue Nile flows generally south from Lake Tana and then west across Ethiopia and northwest into Sudan. Within 30 kilometers (19 mi) of its source at Lake Tana, the river enters a canyon about 400 kilometers (250 mi) long. This gorge is a tremendous obstacle for travel and communication from the north half of Ethiopia to the southern half. The power of the Blue Nile may best be appreciated at Tis Issat Falls, which are 45 meters (148 ft) high, located about 40 kilometers (25 mi) downstream of Lake Tana.
