We found things in Ethiopia’s Omo Valley that our eyes had never seen before, such the varied cultures of the local tribes.

The Banna people in the Omo Valley region of Ethiopia have a unique tradition where young men are taught to walk on stilts. This practice originated as a practical method to safeguard themselves from wild animals, especially when working in fields or moving through natural environments. The Omo Valley is home to predators like lions, leopards, and hyenas, so walking on stilts allows the young men to see potential threats from afar and prevent surprise attacks. This tradition is not only functional but also culturally significant, often performed during ceremonies and celebrations.

Do you also wish to meet them or travel to Ethiopia?
