Vital Yemeni tourist site needs care [Archives:2004/712/Local News]

In the area between Hadramout and Shabwa, the Bir Ali area, there is a natural tourist site resulting from a volcanic mountain, which has crater surrounded by green trees.
This has given the site a beautiful picture and tourist attraction for tourists to go and visit.
The ascending way to the mountain summit is very steep and rugged and that makes it difficult for tourists to reach.
The said site is in dire need for care by tourist authorities, such as building stone stairways to facilitate tourists.
We wonder, where are the efforts of the fund for supporting tourism for paying attention to this site and other similar ones?
