  • Ghost towns – top five abandoned habitations | Travel Feature | Rough Guides
    Food drink Heritage ruins Indigenous culture Leisure Luxury Mountains Museums art Music National parks reserves Nature Nightlife Novelty Off the beaten track People Photography Railway journeys Relaxation Road trips Romance Shopping Structures Surfing Tourist Trail Tradition Transport Walking trekking Wildlife Winter sports Ghost towns top five abandoned habitations By Site Editor March 15th 2012 View Comments There s nothing quite as atmospheric as a deserted but once inhabited place Here s five of our top picks for any ghost town hunter This article was originally published in November 2010 Ghadames Libya The houses in Ghadames a pastel coloured town in the Sahara Desert are as dense as honeycomb it s possible for the women to travel about town by walking on the rooftops keeping separate from the men and its covered alleyways are like an underground maze One can imagine the inhabitants milling about in dark corners but now Ghadames belongs to ghosts government handouts enticed its former 6000 Berber inhabitants to modern houses outside the old town Vila do Ibo Mozambique Strangler figs wrap their fingers around once elegant doorways lofty ceilings gape at the sky and ornamental balconies rust in the sun The grand mansions of Vila do Ibo in northern Mozambique s Quirimbas Archipelgo are earmarked for World Heritage status but their coral stone facades are in such an advanced state of disrepair that you d be forgiven for thinking its already too late to save them The remains of the town are highly atmospheric nonetheless Exploring on foot you can almost picture the scene two or three hundred years ago when the air was full of the scent of spices and the yells of visiting seafarers Gholan Heights Syria One of the most contentious spots on Earth the mountains on Syria s southern border have been occupied by Israel for forty years The hilltop town of Quneitra was evacuated in 1973 and the Syrians refused to rebuild it leaving it as a permanent monument to Israeli action Almost every single building was flattened by the departing Israeli army giving the streets an eerie feel The grey concrete roofs of the small houses still lie flat on the ground around the occasional larger building left standing but gutted internally Djado Niger Timbuktu Forget it A far more intriguing mystery lies hidden on the far side of Niger s Tenere Desert here among vast plains abandonded villages and intriguing cave art the mud brick citadel of Djado rises from palm fringed pools crammed with bright green reeds like some unworldly goblin s castle When was Djado built Why was it abandoned The hot wind stirs the palms but keeps its secrets The hanging village of Habalah Saudi Arabia Appearing to dangle from a 250m cliff face over a deep valley the deserted village of Habalah is a truly unique settlement It takes its name from habi meaning rope a reference to the ladders that the long gone inhabitants used to descend to their dwellings from the plateau above

  • Passport to write: the runners-up! | Travel Feature | Rough Guides
    to grow crops such as pineapple and vanilla but for a wealth of medicinal plants I could not move forward more than a few paces without my guide pointing out a plant with extraordinary pharmaceutical properties This cures a stomach upset when boiled the guide would say scratching furiously beneath a green stem to extract a root Even this one is for cancer indicating to a vine creeping up the deep twilight red trunk of a rosewood tree the two either locked in eternal combat or entwined as perpetual lovers It was perhaps suitable then that my reason for visiting this most sacrosanct of places was to search for the angel of the forest a pure white lemur of almost mythical status known as the silky sifaka I had read that this lemur was of such a wild spirit that it was impossible to raise in captivity and as such not a single specimen existed in a zoo So rare is this creature that it is confined to this singular mountain range and numbers less than a thousand After two days including a treacherous walk to the summit during a 24 hour long downpour my guide joked that this is also called the place of much water we spied a flash of pearlescent white in the canopy Like a true spirit the white seemingly evaporated as if a droplet of rainwater on the ground in the heat of the rising sun We walked on The blinding white reappeared this time a little closer before flickering off into the distance As if hunting a mirage for a creature that felt real in sight and sound but not quite tangible enough to touch we reached the tree where we had last seen a shimmer of white Above us sat our forest angels their icy fur juxtaposed against the chestnut bark of the tree s branches like salt encrusted on granite A group of eight were inspecting us with their gentle otherworldly faces For all of the remarkable stories of apparitions and spectres I d been told none were as astonishing as seeing this palpable seraph like creature The place I call home Catherine Morris There s an uncanny feeling you get when you arrive somewhere When you step off a bus or a train or plane there s a thrill or exhaustion or relief both happiness and trepidation comfort and excitement rolled into each other like the sleeping bag in your backpack or the soggy well thumbed book inside your cagoule pocket When you breathe you fill your lungs with the smell of the place and let the taste of it settle on your tongue the warm foisty fungal tropics the crisp clean mountains and fjords the choked urban heat of your favourite city What you see is vibrant and new a fast moving film you feel you are merely watching rather than starring in over too quickly an enjoyable flick through someone else s photograph album Or else a large painting
