Down in the south, on the west bank of the Omo River are found the Surma, here you can witness the cultural spectacles of the Surma like their body painting and (the women) wearing lip plates. This is an opportunity to see unspoiled wilderness, a variety of flora and fauna, more than 300 bird species and of course the Surma people themselves, their rituals, dance and stick fighting. A minimum of 1 week should be allowed. It takes 2 days by road to where the trek can be started.
