We move further south to the town of Jinka to visit the Konso villages, known for their traditional cluster house style, ritual sites, grave mark Totem (known as Waka), and traditional terrace farming. Our next stop will be Key Afer where you will be able to join in the local weekly Banna and Tsamay market, a very colorful market that attracts neighboring tribes in the region - the Aris from Jinka, the Tsamay from Weyto and the Hamars from Dimeka. Visiting this market will allow you to compare the dressing patterns, ornamentation techniques etc. of the various tribes in the area.
Best Time To Visit
Best time to visit Key Afer is from January to May
