THE VALLEY OF THE PLANETS


THE VALLEY OF THE PLANETS


  • One of the natural wonders of the world, known as Kawakeb. It is located in the Wan Tikofi valley of the Libyan desert near the mountain town of Ghat in southwest Libya.


  • Its rock formations, called trovants, resemble planets in the solar system and have literally ignited the imagination for centuries.


  • These geological formations with mysterious origins are radically different from other rocks on Earth.
  • They gradually grow, move and reproduce like living organisms, and after their break, concentric circles similar to tree circles are observed. That's why they're called "living" or "moving" stones.
