Driving further to the south East of Massawa, Visitors will observe the ancient port of Adulis some 70 kilometers far from the Port City of Massawa. Zula is also adjacent to Adulis. These two ancient ports were a hub to the then vibrant trade that prevailed in the middle east. In 1868 A British Military Expedition led by General Napier built a 21-kilometer railway from Zula to kumaile.
They used the short railway to transport their Elephants, donkeys, and their army personnel to a long journey of 600 kilometers inside Ethiopia, namely the province of Gondar in northwest Ethiopia, to fight against King Tewodros the then Emperor of Ethiopia.
