The Village of Haid Al-Jazil : Haid Al-Jazil could well be one of the most unique places on the planet. The precarious village is perched on a giant rock and overlooks a long, mostly deserted valley in the Yemeni district of Dawan in Hadhramaut province. Of the hundreds of people who once called this village home decades ago, a 2004 census revealed a population of just 17. All of them defying isolation, loneliness and some of the toughest topography.Years of heavy rains, erosion and a lack of regular upkeep have left almost 70 per cent of homes in ruins. This intriguing village that dates back 500 years has been left virtually abandoned, because in the past three decades many locals relocating to Saudi Arabia where the salaries and lifestyle are more appealing. Those who stayed behind were mostly children or the elderly.
