About Mekele and Places to Visit
Mercury Jets provides private jet charter flights to and from Mekele.
Mekelle is a large administrative center, about 400 miles from Ethiopia’s capital, with a population of 323,000 people. The city is located at an altitude of over two thousand meters in the Tigray region. The region is not very popular with tourists, yet there is a lot to see here; each place is steeped in history and offers several types of recreation for every visitor.
Scattered among the striking desert landscape are old churches and monuments that will be of interest to Mekelle to learn about the history of Ethiopia. The most notable of these is the Abuna Yemata Guh Church, a local tourism bureau that organizes regular guided tours. Also worth noting are the Yohannis IV Museum, the former emperor’s palace, now converted into a museum, the Roman waterfall, the Monument to the Popular Front, the Abreha Castel Hotel, and the Chele Anka Waterfall. Of course, the list is not exhaustive; every visitor can find something unique for themselves in the city and the surrounding area.
Mekelle is connected to other major cities and countries by Alula Aba Nega Airport (MQX, HAMK), located 6 miles from the city center.
