Fantasy Land?

What has plants that look this and unclimbed granite tower like this?






It’s Socotra Island off the coast of Yemen that is

home to ancient granite towers and over 300 endemic species of plant, animal and insect life, with a culture that has not changed its ways for thousands of years, a fantasy land, that, for today's day of explorers is still (at least it was!) virgin, unseen, and holds the variable that adventure cannot exist without: Mystery. EvenSinbad the Sailor is rumored to have been here and battled huge dragon-like birds as they destroyed his ship.”

Story of the first two climbers who climbed there.
