The world’s largest sand dune was recently discovered in Oman.

Towering at a dizzying height of 455 metres, the Ramlet Jadilah sand dune is located in the neigbouring country’s Rub Al Khali, or The Empty Quarter, which also stretches to the UAE.

Ramlet Jadilah has now officially overthrown the record-breaking Dune 7 in Namibia.
