Erigabo, Ceerigaabo in Somali, is a several-century old city in the northern Sanaagh region of Somaliland, an independent nation within Somalia. Dallo mountain, one of the most visited national parks in Somaliland is just miles away from the city.

Understand[edit]

The city is home to just over 40,000 people, and is undergoing significant housing and infrastructure development due to its relative stability since the start of the Somalia Civil War.

The climate is commonly described as semi-arid, with similar daily temperatures year-round. The temperatures rarely reach 30°C, but can be quite chilly during the night.
