Naasa Hablood (Somali: Naaso Hablood), also known as Virgin's Breast Mountain, are twin hills situated in Woqooyi Galbeed, Somaliland. Located on the outskirts of the city of Hargeisa, the structures are made of granite and sand. The hills were dubbed Naasa Hablood (literally, "girl's breasts") due to their distinctive conical shape, and its resemblance to thelarchic breast buds.[1][2]
