Harlel is the capital of Ethiopia's Hararghe Province, which National Geographic rated as the most stunning city and fascinating yet contradictory place in East Africa.
It must be said that this small, not-so-famous Ethiopian city has an unusual status and charm throughout Africa.
It is the fourth holy city of Islam, with 82 large and small mosques and 102 holy places, making it an extraordinary religious city.
At the same time, Harar has been the main commercial center of Ethiopia for centuries, with trade routes spreading all over Ethiopia and even to the Horn of Africa and the Arabian Peninsula.
In addition, the ancient city of Harar has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List because of its long history.
Another very special thing about Haleel is that every night, hyenas roam around the city in packs. Since it has always been the custom of the locals to feed the hyenas, you will see an amazing scene of the beasts and people living in harmony here.
The most famous food in Haleel is coffee, which is made through a unique local natural process and is known as the "Wild Rose", and not only does every hotel or restaurant have a special place to make coffee, but there are also a series of ceremonies.
