  an incredible place
by JohnniOmani

Shaharah and the surrounding area has to be one of the most stunning landscapes not only in Yemen but the entire Middle East. Travellers are far and few between here and the locals are not used to mass tourism but they all know that you are going to Shaharah to see the incredible bridge. The first glimpse of the bridge is quite dramatic because you have to walk over the mountains edge to see it (10 min walk from the village) and it is one of the most amazing sites I have ever seen in my life. A 500 year old bridge linking two villages over 9 or 10,000 ft in the air. The bridge looks thin in pictures but it is very strong and wide and villagers still cross back and forth over it with their supplies. Shaharah was one of the most amazing places I have ever been period.
