The Jabal Kharaz mountains stand out just a short distance from the coast of Yemen along the Gulf of Aden in center of the shoreline visible in this orthorectified image.

Jabal Kharaz is a mountainous range of limestone and granite formations extending to within 1 mile of the coast. The summit, 850 meters high, rises about 15 miles northeast of Ras al Arah. A ruin of roughly hewn stone stands on the west side of the usmmit.

Notch, a 2051m high peak, stands about 2 miles north of Jabal Kharaz. A range which extends about 65 miles east from Notch lies from 20 to 25 miles inland and attains hieghts of 914 to 1981m.
