Laas Geel Rock Art Caves, Paintings Depicting Cows Somaliland

Laas Gaal or Laas Geel is a complex of caves and rock shelters in Somaliland. Famous for their rock art, the caves are located not far from Hargeisa, and contain some of the earliest known cave paintings in Africa. Laas Gaal's rock art is estimated to date back to somewhere between 9,000–8,000 and 3,000 BCE.
It is just a fantastic place to visit.
