  • Nature is extraordinary. We humans are like her.
  • Great wadi with a plethora of endemic plants, birds and spectacular mountain scenery. One of the best places to see the Socotra Grosbeak, the Socotra Buzzard and the Socotra Warbler. There is a dam at the end of the road. One can go swimming here. A must see place in Socotra for nature lovers. There are a few houses at the end of the road. Can camp anywhere along the Wadi.
