These unique and weird looking trees are located on Socotra Island in the Indian Ocean 240 kilometres east of the Horn of Africa, Yemen. These extraordinary trees are called Dragons blood trees due to the red resin they are producing and which was used as dye and medicine in ancient times. Looking like open umbrellas, they make the Diksam Platou to one of the most alien looking place on the earth.
