Somaliland Rock-art Sites

Somaliland has many caves including Laas Geel, Dhagah Kureh, Dhambalin rock-art, and some of which remain undiscovered.

Such is the quality of the paintings that at least 10 sites, scattered across semi-desert terrain, are likely to be given World Heritage status. Yet Somaliland is a country whose history is totally hidden.

The complex cave and rock shelters of Laas Geel, Dhagah Kureh, and Dhagah Nabi Galay lie just 30-45 minutes outside of Hargeisa, the capital of Somaliland, a self-declared republic.

Exhibiting outstanding Neolithic rock art, the sites’ cave paints are considered to be some of the best-preserved rock paintings in all of Africa, and are essential to the Horn of Africa’s historical and heritage legacy.
