Mount Ras Dashen Description

Ras Dashen is the highest mountain in Ethiopia  and ten highest mountain of Africa . Part of  Selemien Mountains National Parks, it reaches an elevation of 4,550 metres (14,928 ft). The more common form, “Ras Dashen” is a corruption of its Amharic name, “Ras Dejen”, used by the system of the Ethiopian Mapping Authority  (EMA) which means “the general who fights in front of the Emperor”

According to Erik Nilsson, Ras Dashen is the eastern peak of the rim of “an enormous volcano, the northern half of which is cut down about thousand metres by numerous ravines, draining into the Takkazzi River.” Its western counterpart is Mount Biuat (4,510 meters), separated by the valley of the Meshaha river
