    Default Somalia Landscapes

    This section of the forum is pretty fucking dead. Thought I'd revive it with beautiful images of the landscapes of Somalia.

    I'll try and start threads here for Ethiopia , Djibouti and Eritrea too.

    There are apparently a good number of Frankincense trees to be found in Daallo. I suppose this might have been one of the places our old Berber ancestors came to gather their wares. Pretty cool too since the Sanaag and Bari regions are my paternal homelands.

    I'm going to post pics of many regions and areas but munch on these images for now. And of course; if you've been to the country- go ahead and share pics of everything from beaches to rivers, mountains, grasslands etc. You can even share pics of cities, towns and villages but only if they somehow blend in real well with the local landscape. Try not to share too many pics of cities and so on, lest we digress form the point here.

    Forgive how cluttered this is... A lot of beaches, this is probably really just the tip of the ice berg and I'm a bit tired right now so enjoy these for the time being.

    Yh such misconception can occur especially from the media, when you hear about famine and drought. You should know that some things are blown out of proportion by western NGO's that are looking for some funds from countries, bare in mind none of these funds go directly to where they claim they are giving it too. Rather the funds are used by bureaucracies.

    The greenery is mostly concentrated in Southern Somalia where the two large rivers are located, however there are also greenery in North West of the country and other parts of the North especially the mountainous areas.

    More greenery:

    As Ajuran said, the greenery is mostly concentrated in certain areas such as the Daallo mountain range, northwest Somalia (near Ethiopia) and the South. There's greenery and arable land to be found all across the country but only in perhaps rough patches and mostly just in mountainous regions like that area near Sheikh that I shared (its especially like this in the North) . Those regions I first mentioned are mostly the places where greenery can actually found with some decent density.
