Al Makhrom - The Hole 1
NABSQNO 35R 623777 - 3038089
New Valley Governorate. The Valley of Agabat is situated in the White Desert National Park which is an area of outstanding beauty. A vast number of brilliant white rock formations had eroded into contorted shapes. Unfortunately the topography is not conducive in forming many natural arches. This arch known as Al Makhrom or The Hole is one exception and is possibly the largest in the area. The name appears to be a generic term for rock arches and is found elsewhere.
The arch has a span of 49 feet and a height on 25 ft.
