Giorgis_Graphical_mapRobit_Bata_LegendOnly 5km away from Goha Mariam church is Giorgis church. Unlike Goha Mariam, the forest surrounding Giorgis Church is quite misshapen and has no barrier to protect its edges. It is a kilometer from the nearest dirt road and thus reaching it necessitates traversing not only the surrounding maize and tef fields but also a large stream that cuts deeply into the red, fertile soil. After heavy rains, toads become abundant in the lands around the forest.

Goirgis Church Forest Area: 6.1 hectares (61207 m2)
