The Blue Nile Falls are located within easy travel of Bahir Dar & Lake Tana. They are known as Tis Abay in Amharic, meaning "smoking water". The falls are considered one of Ethiopia's best known tourist attractions.

The falls are estimated to be between 37 and 45 metres high, consisting of four streams that originally varied from a trickle in the dry season to over 400 metres wide in the rainy season. Regulation of Lake Tana now reduces the variation somewhat and since 2003 a hydro-electric station has taken reduced the flow of the falls except during the rainy season.
