The Ennedi Natural Arches

The Ennedi plateau in Chad has hundred of natural arches, having been documented only few of them. Here I will show some of them.

The Aloba Arch is one of the most awesome archs in the world. Can you see the person standing just in front of the arch? This arch has a span of approximately 250 feet and a height of nearly 400 feet.
This is the Anoa arch. The largest of its three openings is 55 feet high.
Dentelles Arches
The Djoula Oued Arch has a height of 107 feet and a span of 46 feet.
Elephant Arch has a height of 75 feet and a span of 59 feet. The smaller opening in the upper left zone is, certainly, the eye of the elephant.
Another Elephant Arch, with a height of 94 feet and a span of 15 feet.
The Eye Of Tokou has a height of 66 feet and a span of 45 feet.
Five Arch Rock, certainly, a rock with five openings.Depicted in the photo is the largest spawn, which measures 45 feet of height and 67 feet of span.
