Wadi Dirhur, Dixsam Plateau, Socotra Island, Yemen

Wadi Dirhur

The ‘Grand Canyon of Socotra‘, Wadi Dirhur is an impressive sight, gashed into the limestone plateau separating Dixsam Plateau from the Firhmin Forest.

Down in the wadi, find freshwater pools to swim in, though sometimes they can be covered in a thick green algae. 

Succulent fans will enjoy meandering up the sides of the wadi in search of rare plant life.
