The founder of the city is the legendary king Menelik II., who succeed to bring together the northern and the southern parts of the country. The foundation of the city took place in 1896.

Backpacking through the mountains of New Mexico is no easy task, but some areas are more rewarding than others. If you are in the state then the Gila Forest is a highly recommended beautiful location worth visiting. Those who are fit enough to traverse the cat walk and then hike a few miles may be rewarded with beautiful flowing waterfalls, abundant wildlife, and strikingly breathtaking landscapes.

The Gila Cliff Dwellings are located in southwestern New Mexico, where the Sonoran and Chihuahuan desert meet. The cliff dwellings are a perfect mixture of the mountain environment of New Mexico as well as the hot desert land. Gila has the most publicly owned land outside of Alaska, and contains millions of acres of wilderness. This area is a nature lovers dream come true and is a must see.
