Jabal Bura

.

Jabal Bura is part of the Tentative list of Yemen in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.

Jabal Bura is a mixed site on a mountain in western Yemen. The west side of the mountain is undeveloped and covered in tropical vegetation, with bananas growing at the base, coffee on the slopes, and durum wheat near the summit; this area also supports a large number of endemic and migratory birds. The east side of the mountain supports a community that retains its own customs, and has developed its landscape in a series of hamlets and terraces for agriculture that reach the summit of the mountain.
