Haraz Mountains

Key information: Haraz Mountains

  • Yemen's beautiful scenery and fascinating culture are virtually untouched by the western world.
  • Various possible routes take you through scenery ranging from tough, dry mountains to deserts to lush valleys.
  • Experience the ancient Yemeni way of life in fortified villages, some on tremendous crags, with their colourful markets and unchanged traditions.
  • These can be tough walks in high, remote mountains, which have not yet been reliably mapped, and whose conservative inhabitants can easily by accidentally offended. It is strongly advised to travel with a guide. Come prepared.
