Best Places to Visit in Yemen
Yemen is a Muslim-dominated country but it is an open city. Approximately 3,000 Christians live in the country and they are not forced to convert to Islam. That’s how liberated Yemen is. Anyway, it is such a nice place to visit because Yemen is rich in old age architectural structures. If you are into hot climate, Middle Eastern cuisine and don’t mind climbing hilltops, then, here is a Yemen travel guide compiled by Wanderlust15 just for you.
15. Shajarat Al Ghareeb
One of the places to visit in Yemen is the Shajarat Al Ghareeb which is also called by tourists as the Mother of Trees. It is a really old and a very big tree located near Duba in Yemen. The distinct characteristics of this tree are its shape, size and age. Shajarat Al Ghareeb has elephant-like feet branches – they are really huge. The size of the tree is really massive and the government has placed a gate on the area so that people can’t touch it. As for the age, it is believed to be 2,000 plus years old.
