Blue Nile Falls (Tissisat)

nature1Tissisat, or smoke of fire, is the local name for the Blue Nile Falls, the most spectacular waterfall in North Africa, and the most dramatic stretch of either the White or Blue Niles. 400 meters wide and dropping over a sheer cliff more than 45 meters deep, the falls generate a curtain of spray (often adorned by magnificent rainbows) that can be seen up to a kilometer away. The falls are about 35 km from Bahar Dar.
