This increasingly visited location is not without its challenges: resource development and tourism are two more prominent ones. The area is very well known for its concentration of diverse traditional cultures including the Hamer, Nyangatom, Karo, Mursi and Banna; sometimes cultural tourism and the traditional way of life collide in not so desirable ways.
