In Skand area, the Socotra's highest peak (1525 m) is to be found among a series of micro-climates which have developed many different kinds of atmospheres, from humid rainforests in the high lands of the Haghier mountains to the open savannah-like prairies which lead the way through mysterious valleys to the crisp blue ocean. The young sharp mountains of Skand form a massif of vertical cliffs where Dragon Blood trees and a variety of endemic plants grow in impossible ways. Small ruins of ancient constructions dot the landscape.
