Trekking along the range that separates Dirhur and Durhur valleys to the south of the Haigher Mountains. Since  a new airport was built in 2002,  interest in this remote paradise has grown enormously. Though, even at its height prior to the Arab Spring, only 4,000 or so people visit attractive one for committed travelers about ecotourism in exotic places. Nevertheless the traditional ways that have endured for centuries, which have been the keepers of Socotra's outstanding biodiversity may be irreversibly damaged if the mass tourism and speculation takes over the place.
