"A big thank-you to the dancing boys" Manakhah by TheLongTone

Manakhah Travel Guide: 18 reviews and 66 photos

Manakhah is extraordinary because of it's situation more than anything else. It's a long thin village strung out along a high ridge: on either side the land drops away precipitously. Even by Yemeni standards the landscape is spectacular.

I was 'guided' round the village by these two boys who latched onto me as I left the hotel. They weren't that informative but they were great company and very fond of a quick dance every now and again
