Dixam Plateau is located in the central part of Socotra.When you leave the main road, you will drive by a small village where you can buy Dragon’s blood. It is the name used for a red resin obtained from Dragon Trees. It is a good immunostimulant and wound-healthing remedy.
After passing by the village you have an option to turn to the left to reach the verge of Socotra’s most beautiful canyon (Wadi Dirhur). The late afternoon would be the best time to come here, the soft evening light makes surrounding views look fantastic. Visitors often use this place for camping. But it may be cold and windy at night. There is a near camping spot which would be more comfortable.
If you would like you could walk down to the brink of the canyon and discover some caves that are still inhabited by mountain shepherds.
