By bus from Gondar to Axum Mar 18, 2013
The road is really spectacular, unfortunately a big part of it at the moment under construction (my guess it might be finished in 2 years, but who knows).

By your ticket (127 Birr, 10 hours, only 1 bus per day) to Shire (where you have to change) the day before at the bus terminal in Gondar. If you have the ticket you can go in the terminal (and bus) a few minutes before the terminal opens to the general public. The bus was seconds after the terminal opened completely full. From Shire are frequent buses (25 Birr, 1.5 hours) to Axum.

I was offered a private car for $ 75, it was not clear if minibus or something else, but with the road condition as it is at the moment the only advantage would have been to stop once in a while to make pictures.

There is also Ethiopian Air between the 2 towns, if you came with Ethiopian the country you can get a discount (also from Nairobi or Djibouti, but not with a share code flight), but you miss the great landscape
