The site is well-known because it showcases numerous examples of rock art dating back to 6,000 years BCE depicting animals, and scenes from fights, as well as a famous 5 m (16 ft) tall drawing of a giraffe. Due to the difference in altitude and surface, the mountains support some mammals, as well as numerous subtypes of Acacia trees.
