Manakha

Manakha is situated at a height of about 1500 metres in an anticline within the more than 2000-metre high towering mountains of the Haraz range. Manakha had always served as a natural fortress town for defence ahead of Sanaa. The strategic advantageous location on the steep slopes made the construction of a town wall unnecessary. Nowadays, the main connecting road leads from the Red Sea up to Sanaa, passing the small town on its way. A visit to the wild jagged mountainous region belongs to the scenic highlights of a tour aroundYemen.

 

Al Hajjarah

Beginning at Manakha, a track winds along the mountain slopes up to the 2000-metre high village of Al Hajjarah whose name means the stony one. Large parts of the mountainous slopes are terraced; mainly millet and qat but also some coffee is cultivated. The terraces and villages in the Haraz mountains around Manakha are considered to be the most beautiful in Yemen  and Al Hajjarah as the most beautiful town in the Haraz mountains! The tower like houses of this defended village are built so close together that they built on a steep rock face -, form a closed wall of protection. There is only one single narrow entrance to the village, which is closed off by a heavy wooden door. The up to five storey high houses in Al Hajjarahs are superimposed on the uneven rock surface a bold accomplishment by Yemeni master-builders.
