Bet Neakutoleab Cave Church

Outside of Lalibela is Bet Neakutoleab, a church tucked into a mountain overhang. It's a little rough around the edges, but that's to be expected when trying to maintain a church under a water-dripping mountainside.

The approach is down a path and then into the mountain.
