From Grünau you can see the two ranges that make up the Karas Mountains. These mountains are landmarks in southern Namibia, where they stand proudly above the rather flat surrounding terrain. The mountains consist of uplifted blocks of sandstone, limestones and shales. These blocks have been so eroded and dissected in some areas that it is difficult to imagine the mountains originally had flat tops. Because moist air is forced up over the mountains, they often receive slightly more rain than lower areas nearby. Grünau is about a 100 km from the spectacular Fish River Canyon. The incision of the Fish River over millions of years into the landscape has the Fish River Canyon in its present shape as a result to expose some of Namibia’s oldest rocks. It is Namibia’s biggest geological wonder. It is a massive 161 km long and 27 km wide, with a varying depth of 550 m.
