The Guna Plateau – or Jebel Guna – is a long flat-topped range running parallel to the St. Katherine road from its “head,” Ras el Guna, all the way to Wadi Ghlim and the Nawamis area. On the other side, separating the range from the Tih Plateau, the long sandy corridor of Wadi Zalaqa runs. From ground level the Guna Plateau doesn’t look any special, it is certainly not like the rugged high mountains or the surrealistic sandstone hills of the sandy plains. But it does have surprises for those who are willing to explore its top. Shallow basins form a complex labyrinth, you can see them layer by layer like on a contour map. They drain to dramatic-looking, sudden, deep gullies, and from the rim of the plateau you have stunning views on different areas.
