Originally a junkyard that later became a monument honoring the 30-year-long war between Ethiopia and Eritrea, Tank Graveyard sits piled with demolished armored vehicles, military tanks, and other vestiges of war. Even though this landmark looks like a mountain of scattered iron at a first glance, it stands as a significant historical remembrance of the country's hardships on the road to achieving independence. Most of all, it serves as a symbol of Eritrean final victory over Ethiopia. Add Tank Graveyard to your Asmara travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Asmara visit planner.

  • Like everyone says - you can get a permit on the spot from the tourist office by showing your passport. However, no one asked me for it. If you want to walk here on your own - this is what you do...
