The Ugab Valley is situated between the cities Outjo in the east, Khorixas and Twyfelfontein in the west. The landscape of the Ugab Valley reminds of the Monument Valley in the USA. Several table mountains, plateaus, known as Ugab Terraces, can be found here. In the middle of the valley is a limestone pillar, known as Fingerclip. It sits on a sound wide base, is 35 metres high, 15 metres wide and dotted with protruding stones. After Mukorob (Finger of God) collapsed, the Vingerklip in the Ugab Valley has become the best-known erosional rock formation in Namibia.
