Adama Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Adama is since 2000 the capital of Oromia state. In the 20th century it was known as Nazreth, but Adama is the original Oromo name. It is situated in the Rift Valley, on the main road from Addis Ababa to Djibouti (and Assab in Eritrea, but that route cannot presently be used) and at the road junction towards Asella in the Arsi zone. It is therefore a busy town full of trucks. The town grows rapidly and new buildings are coming up all the time. The Addis Ababa – Djibouti railway also passes through Adama, but it is presently little used on this section. Sodere, 25 km SE of Adama, is a popular weekend resort based on its hot springs and temperate swimming pools.
