Simien Mountains, Kingdom Of Gondar

In the Lord of the Rings Tolkien took the name Gondar for one of this kingdoms. The Simiens have a misty, vertical feel with Gelada baboons roaming in packs of hundreds. The farmers have to protect their crops from these hoards of baboons with the proviso that they are protected with a sentence of 7 years for anyone convicted of killing one.
