Wow, could not evan imagine such a surealistic place to fly in to. This looks realy diferent.

A visitor from United States posted Mon May 8, 2006:
The location is unbelievable, let alone the fact that there is landing strip on the top of this massive rock. The photographer's composition is also excellent. In a widely disseminated e-mail, this photo is one of five amazing landing strips. It was so unique that I had to find the details and have searched first for your website, then the photograph's details.
