We stopped several times on our way through and each moment was enjoyable!

First, lunch under a dragon blood tree - our first experience. The birds were surrounding us as well, but not overwhelmingly so. They were still cautious ;)

Second, a stop at the archeological site where they are studying and growing dragon blood trees. So amazing that all the ones you see are 2000-3000+ years old. There are None on the island that are in the 'hundreds'. The ones growing for study are in between 10-30 years and they look more like an agave plant or aloe plant - a small shrub. Amazing what they turn into thousands of years later.

This is the place to see these huge trees, and may be have a meal under the shades of one of them, if you plan to buy the dragon blood tree powder, then buy it from the locals here, cheaper than the market price.
Have a look at the valley, majestic breath taking views that will stick in the memory.

The location is simply stunning, with hundreds of Dragon Blood Trees all over the plateau. They are immediately associated with Socotra and the view of tens of them together is incredible.
Kids from the village will run at you to sell frankincense and dragon blood tree powder, 500 rials for a tiny bag of them.
After taking many pics, I decided to have some fun and invited the kids to play with my mobile: they went absolutely crazy for it, it was very funny to watch. Then they asked for the inevitable "sura" (picture) together.
It is a great spot to have a picnic also, in the shade of one of the trees so if you can go for it.

This is where you can see thousands of Dragon Blood Tree...We spent our day in this place,had picnic under that majestic giant tree,went hiking to Daerhu fresh water pool.To us,this place seriously looks like a dinasour land.My opinion,you should not skip Diksam even if you already see dragon blood tree in Homhil,because the landscape between those two places are different.Yes there will be the same highlight(the trees) but seriously the environment and experience are different.
