The 900-year-old village on top of a mountain

Shonke village is a 900-year-old settlement on the top of a mountain in Ethiopia’s Amhara region.

Residents say they prefer their traditional stone-built homes to Ethiopia’s “shining cities”.

About 20 generations have lived in the village, but residents now say half of the village’s estimated households have left in search of farmlands down the hill.
