Shoot with care
Area of pristine natural beauty - do all you can to keep it that way! Take litter home, take nothing from the natural scene and follow your guide's advice.

About this spot
The Homhil plateau of Socotra island is located on the northeast part of the island. It is hard to access as it is high in the mountains. It is a place to find Frankincense trees, Dragon blood trees and Bottle trees. There are views on the mountains as well as views on the ocean from up here.
