Simien Mountains - Ethiopia


Check out this spectacular drone video from some of the highest mountains in Africa, compliments of contributor Global Air Media.  The Simien Mountains form part of the highlands of northern Ethiopia.  They were formed by a highly unusual geological process shared by only one other mountain range (the Drakensberg in South Africa).  The highest of the Simiens is Ras Deshen; with a peak elevation of 4.6k meters (about 14.5k ft.), it's Ethiopia's highest and one of the tallest on the continent.
