This is Darband-i Basara (or Basara Gorge). The gorge transects the anticlines of the upper part of Qaradagh Mountain Ridge. The paved road leads to Delezha Village. The image was shot from the western part of the outlet. The tip of the red arrow is where a rock relief lies. The rock relief is though to be Lulubian and dates to the late 3rd millennium to early 2nd millennium BCE. Sulaymaniyah, Kurdistan, Iraq.
