Canyons of Jabal Shams{Sun Mountain} 3000m.- Oman..(plse enlarge)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

This area, often referred to as the Grand Canyon of Arabia, once supported dozens of remote mountain settlements. In the early 2000s however, the Oman Government moved all the inhabitants to less remote sites with easier access to modern services, leaving the villages to ghosts and foreign trampers.

Hi Bassam, thank you for the link, I just saw that I liked this photo already before and even gave a yellow star :-) It's really great how nature sometimes produces similar forms in very different parts of the world, isn't it? Best regards again, Felix

Bassam, just the last Weekend I tought about your pictures.... we've had a report about parts of Oman in german TV. Was very exciting. (German only, but maybe you may recognize some areas... That may be available until Sunday, 26.th...

Besides... that GC of Oman looks very impressive...
