Harar & Eastern Ethiopia

Harar

Walled City

Harar, World Heritage–listed Harar (ሐረር) is a place apart. With its 368 alleyways squeezed into just 1 sq. km. Its countless mosques and shrines, animated markets, crumbling walls and charming people will make you feel as if you’ve floated right out of the 21st century. It’s the east’s most memorable sight and shouldn’t be missed. As if that wasn’t enough, there are many chances to get up close and personal with wild hyenas.
