We go gently uphill through meadows and ocher land. We reach a small pass and then continue our hike on the ridges through small shrubs and plants. Viewpoints on the Great Chimgan. There are the old rock petroglyphs, almost 9000 years old, to see. It is difficult to trust but, in old times, the primitive men walked here with bow and hunted Gemsbok. These rock petroglyphs are very precise: one can clearly see not only Gemsbok with beautifully curved antler, but also faces of hunters with their bow, without or with horses or even camels, spiders.

Then all the petroglyphs show the real life in the past; one understands this harmony of nature and primitive man! Then return to the camp. Dinner and overnight in tent camp.
