    The ravines and nearby villages on camel back and visit the 800 year old fort Ater - Camels remain an important mode of transport for man and goods alike. They are also an ideal means for exploring the ravines and searching for the wildlife that have made these ravines their home. Be transported back in time as you amble along long forgotten trails and pathways on these haughty beasts, with their snootily upturned noses and disdainfully curled lips. One may take a Camel Safari along the river banks, into the ravines, through villages and up to Fort Ater.
