95 km from Djibouti, 49 km from Dikhil. Abêssalé, who became Ali Sabieh, means "the wadi of the serpent". This small town of about 20,000 inhabitants is very pleasant with its white houses that spread out at the foot of dark reliefs. The city, like its Ethiopian sister, Dire Dawa, was born from the establishment of the train at the beginning of the 20th century. You will appreciate the lively market, the colours and sounds of everyday life, the contact with the quiet and smiling inhabitants.
This high altitude town and its small hotel can also be an interesting base for exploring the surrounding villages.
