Konso village ethiopia

Konso is a town on the Sagan River in south-western Ethiopia. It constitutes a spectacular example of a living cultural tradition stretching back 21 generations (more than 400 years) adapted to its dry hostile environment. The landscape demonstrates the shared values, social cohesion and engineering knowledge of its communities. The site also features anthropomorphic wooden statues - grouped to represent respected members of their communities and particularly heroic events - which are an exceptional living testimony to funerary traditions that are on the verge of disappearing. Stone steles in the towns express a complex system of marking the passing of generations of leaders. We took plenty of photos of the Tukuls and You don't get hassled from any of the villages for photos as long as you don't point a camera at them, but if you do want a photo be prepared to pay 5br after asking their permission.
