HARAR

In Medioevo "Walled City", con le sue 99 moschee e santuari, è considerato il quarto centro più sacro del mondo islamico. Una pietra forte e muro di fango con cinque grandi porte circondano la città di Harar. Le donne Harari sono famose per fare dei bei cestini mentre gli argentieri della città sono famosi per i loro attraenti gioielli. Luoghi di interesse da visitare in Harar sono: il "Rimbaud House" che prende il nome dal famoso poeta francese che visse nel 1880, il mercato ricco e coinvolgente, la casa di Ras Mekonnen e le prestazioni di Iena-uomo che nelle prime ore della serata è solito alimentare i suoi amici selvaggi, le iene, con carne e ossa che tiene direttamente tra i denti.

SOF OMAR

One of the most spectacular and extensive underground caverns in the world: the Sof Omar cave system, an extraordinary natural phenomenon of breathtaking beauty, is to be found at 120 kilometers (74 miles) eastward from Gobba, in Bale, in a low valley filled with thorn trees and weird funnels of termite hills.

Yet another mysterious site takes visitors from Gobba, in Bale, for 120 kilometers (74 miles) eastward through a low valley filled with thorn trees and weird funnels of termite hills. The visitors are sure to be awestruck with one of the most spectacular and extensive underground caverns in the world: the Sof Omar cave system, an extraordinary natural phenomenon of breathtaking beauty. The caverns are formed by the Web River, which vanishes into this giant underground world with its arched portals, high, eroded ceilings, and deep, vaulted echoing chambers.

The caves currently constitute an important Islamic shrines named after the saintly Sheikh Sof Omar, who is said to have taken refuge here many centuries ago. The site has a religious history of thousands of years, which predates the arrival of the Muslims in Bale. The caves are where nature has worked wonders of architecture, where one can see soaring pillars of stone twenty meters (66 feet) high, flying buttresses, fluted archways, and tall airy vaults. Finally, the river itself is reached, sunless sea flowing through a deep gorge. The large central hall of Sof Omar, the "Chamber of Columns" (so named after the colossal limestone pillars that are its dominant feature) is one of the highlights of the cave system.
