IntroductionThis port city is the jumping-off point for trips into the Hadramawt mountains. In Al Mukalla (pop. 65,000), you'll find the Husn al Ghuwayzi fortress (high atop a cliff—great views); Al Mukalla Museum (history); the Ar Rawdhah Mosque; and an abundance of ornately engraved doors. If time allows, go inland to Tarim, then back to the coast via Ash Shihr and on to Al Mukalla. While this trek can be done in one superlong day, we suggest an overnight stay along the way (in what will likely be below-standard accommodations). Plan a one-night stay in Al Mukalla. 310 mi/500 km northeast of Aden.
