The monastery overshadows the town of Nefasit from 825 meters above. The climbing requires trekking of about 7 kilometers.

Abune Philipos has sanctioned the climbing of females for he used to say “he would rather be confronted by the intent look of the lionesses rather than the faces of women”. Ever since no female pilgrim will dare to set foot on the mountainous monastery.

The Debre Bizen Monastery is located at the tip of an escarpment in the country’s topography. The road from Asmara to Nefasit, 25 Kilometers leading to the foot of the Debre Bizen Monastery, displays a breathtaking view where one would enjoy a gradual descent from 2400 meters above sea level to about 1670 meters.
