Named after its geographical features and the famous Omo River, the Omo Valley is a spectacularly beautiful area with diverse attractions, ecosystems, cultures and languages. It is a home for at least 16 distinct tribes with unique culture & language. The majority of the region is dry and inhospitable: 0.5 % is highland, 5 % is midland, 60 % is lowland and 34 % is desert. Despite this only 8.5 % of the populations are urban dwellers.
