The largest commercial centre in the high mountains, Manakhah might be a nondescript town, but it’s the centre of Yemeni trekking. From here everything from gentle hour-long rambles to serious multiday expeditions fan out across the highlands.
There’s no bank in Manakhah, but you can change US dollars and euros (cash) at the foreign-exchange dealers in the market. There’s also a telephone centre.
