"Kusti, the route to the South" Kusti by yurxlnc

Kusti Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 25 photos

It has been suggested that Kusti [or Kosti in local pronunciation] was named after a Greek trader called Costa, when Kosti was a busy trading post on the river route to the southern Sudan.. With the long civil war, the river route became dangerous and the port declined.
A bridge was built by the Chinese across the White Nile and a road constructed between Khartoum and El Obeid.

Kosti is situated within easy distance of Sinnar and the large sugar factory at Kenana. There is another sugar factory at Assalaya, and more under construction.

    Loved the picture of Rawat market. It might be really interesting to visit it, not that I would understand any conversations. But I'd also leave cycling in Sudan to the young. Not looking forward to a sun stroke!:)
