Senbete has a small, but very entertaining and colourful market, worth a visit.

The market in Senbete, two hours south of Kombolcha, occurs on Sundays. From all over the area people are traveling to this small village, to sell or buy, or just to meet. There are even bus tours from Addis Ababa, 5-6 hours to the south, just to visit the market.

The market is a lot smaller than its famous counterpart in Bati, or even compared to Kombolcha,  but very colourful, thanks to Oromo women with plentiful silver jewelry, bright dresses and brilliant headscarves.

Pictures say so much more than words, in this case.
