Area 2


Area 2 includes the northern end of the massif to the Wadi Sughd area, traditionally known as Awiss. It is geomorphologically rugged with a substantial hydrographic system and a progressively decreasing slope towards north. The morphology of this locale lacks the imposing rock structures with vast shelters or caves present in the rest of the massif. Nonetheless, the area hosts the highest number of rock art sites dotting the isolated hills and characteristic boulders and an extraordinary incidence of petroglyphs. Intricately layered Pastoral and later petroglyphs are the most distinctive rock art features in the area.
