Learn about the country’s history at Qohaito, a fairly recently discovered site that showcases the life of the people here dating back to the 5th millennium BCE. The remains of the ancient city sit at an altitude of 2,500 m (8,202 ft) above sea level. Most visitors come here to see the Adi Alauti cave and the rock art inside, over 7,000 years old. Archaeological excavations are still in progress, so there could yet be some important new discoveries made at the site. Put Qohaito on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Debub Region day trip planning website.
