ALG-62, Shepherd's Fresco Arch, Jabbaren Area. 6.2 meter span (measured). GPS 32R 570402 2706625. From ALG-61 (Long Slit Arch), continue on the cairned loop trail northwest, leaving the rim trail and entering into the maze (rock blocks). Walk inside the little maze for 5 minutes to the oval opening. The trail goes by the arch. As the name suggests, there is a beautiful fresco on the side of the opening. The rock art is estimated at 8,000 years old. The shepherd people living there in the past were perhaps fascinated by rock opening symbolism. If you like both arches and rock art, you will have a great moment here.
