When people think of Yemen, they often don't realize that the country is home to some of the most stunning natural beauty on earth. From towering mountain peaks and pristine coastal waters, to vast expanses of desert and rugged canyons, there's something for everyone to enjoy in Yemen.
Here are some of the highlights:
The highlands in the north offer spectacular landscapes of rolling hills and jagged mountains, while the eastern deserts are home to dramatic sand dunes, ancient rock formations, and oases with palm trees and bubbling springs. The Gulf of Aden coast is a treasure trove of beaches and coral reefs, and in the south you'll find rugged mountains and wadis (dry river beds) carved through ancient canyons.
Yemen is still a relatively undiscovered destination, so you'll have plenty of opportunities to enjoy natural beauty without the crowds. So if you're looking for an adventure off the beaten path, be sure to add Yemen to your list!
