Bahrain's Tree of Life ranks high on Seven Wonders list
The Tree of Life, a 400-year old mesquite tree in Bahrain whose survival in an area completely free of water supply has made it a legend, is currently ranked fourth in the Official New Seven Wonders of Nature campaign.
- The unique tree, standing alone in the heart of the desert about two kilometres from Jebel Dukhan, Bahrain's highest point, is one of few Arab entries under the category forest, natural parks, and nature reserves.
