Mekele is the capital city of Tigrai. From being rather a nondescript scattered town in the highlands, it has entered the 21st century with a vengeance.

It is refreshingly clean, orderly and surprisingly unaffected by tourism although there are some decent places to stay and eat. 

There is not much history,  however it is a good place to start your 4- 5 day trip into the {Danakil} and then on the way back to recharge your batteries.

Mekele is about 80 km from {Wukro} where there are rock hewn churches.
