North of the Nuba Mountains, and still open to foreigners, is El-Obeid, a prosperous market centre. There are a couple of attractions, including a museum and a Roman Catholic cathedral, but the town is mostly a stop-off point between Khartoum and the Nuba Mountains (which are still off-limits to travellers).
