The Dakhata Valley is nicknamed the Valley of Wonders due to some peculiar rock formations offering nice scenery.

This valley of about 12 km is on the road going to Somalia. There are many police checkpoint because of the never-ending troubles in the country. Nevertheless, it is a worthwhile detour not very far from Harar.
