The Desert Rose of Hammars Village

about us

Turmi lodge, which is located at the heart of Hamer People is a wonderful place to stay and enjoy your visit. The surrounding beautiful scenery and the green vegitations in the compound will add a fresh touch for your travel. The Lodge has 34 Furnished rooms with each beautiful bath rooms, 24 hours hot water, Restaurant decorated by traditional crafts and 24 hours electric Power Available.

Despite being an important transit and tourist hub, Turmi (ቱርሚ) is just a speck of a town. It’s surrounded by Hamer villages and on Monday the villagers, along with nearly every tourist in the valley, descend on the large market.

Hamer women, with their shimmering coppery-coloured tresses, sell vegetables, spices, butter, milk and traditional items like incised calabashes, head stools, metal arm bracelets and fantastically smelly goatskins decorated with beads and cowrie shells – it doesn’t get more atmospheric than this. The smaller Thursday market is almost tourist-free. Turmi is also a handy base from which to arrange day trips to Omorate.
