Booking a trek

You can book a trek with Yemen Trekking using the information on this webpage.

As any business there are few things to remember before making contact with Yemen Trekking for a tour through the Haraz mountains:

  • Business in Yemen is different from Europe. A deal is simply a deal, there is no small print or lengthy regulations. Please keep this in mind at all times.
  • Be sure you want to go for a trek, don't make inquiries if you haven't made up your mind about going to Yemen.
  • Be as specific as possible, prepare your trekking requirements without writing books about it.
  • Yemen is a changing country, government regulations can change from day to day. This can affect your trip and is part of reality for everyone in Yemen.
  • If you travel with a group (max. 5) communicate only through one person.
  • Start your inquiries minimal 2 month in advance prior to arrival to make sure Yemen Trekking can arrange the right guide for you.
