The climate of Bahir Dar (Ethiopia)
Bahir Dar is a big town in the north-west of Ethiopia in the province of Amhara on lake Tana. Not far outside the town are the falls of the Blue Nile. Outside the town are also the palaces of the former emperor of Ethiopia Haile Selassi. The emperor Haile Selassi is considered a descendant of King Solomon by adherents of the Rastafari religion. The town lies at an altitude of more than 1800 meters. Because the town lies on lake Tana tourists come to the town. The various islands in lake Tana are inhabited by monks.
Bahir Dar has a tropical savannah climate with one distinct rainy period. This rainy period here lasts from May up to and including October. During the rainy period there are not many days with precipitation but if there is precipitation then this is mostly abundant.
