I do lovet
one of the most beautiful and amazing places i've been to our mother earth gifted us a beautiful place which is called aden and especially crater subhan allah 😍😍😍😘😘🌻🌹
i havn't climbed that hill yet, but im looking forward to seeing Aden from such a spot , ❤ يحبي لك ياعدن 😍
Excellent trip though a shame to see the fortress itself so vandalised. Major attraction is being able to see almost all of the crater from the roof - particularly spectacular at night
An old fortress with a very nice view
