Tullu Dimtu (Afan Oromo: Tulluu Diimtuu) is the fourth highest peak in Ethiopia after Ras Dashen (4550m), Ancua (4462m), and Kidis Yared (4453m). Its topographic prominence is relatively low due to its location in the Sanetti Plateau.

Tullu Dimtu is part of range of mountains Bale in Oromia Region in southeast Ethiopia, located in the Bale National Park. It forms part of the divide between the drainage basins of the Weyib and Shebelle Rivers.

A rough gravel road, the third highest in Africa, leads to the top of Tullu Dimtu.[1]
