Haggier Mountains. Peaks of the Haggier Mountains of Socotra, emerging through the clouds at sunrise. These mountains, which rise to over 1500 metres in height, dominate the interior of the 3600-square-kilometre island. Socotra is located in the Indian Ocean at the mouth of the Gulf of Aden, 340 kilometres (km) from mainland Yemen and 250km from the coast of Somalia. Its isolation has led to the evolution of a unique flora and fauna. The trunk belongs to a dragon's blood tree (Dracaena cinnabari), which is endemic to the island.
