KSA: Under Jebel Al Lawz

Jebel AlLawz, meaning the almond mountain in Arabic, is one of the most famous mountains of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. We camped at 28°36’33.0″N 35°15’51.4″E – which was about as far as the vehicles would take us – and hiked North-north-east up the wadi. Lots of birdlife – my favourite being the sunbirds – and wolf tracks easily spotted in the sandy areas. There must be a lot of water coming down here after significant rains; it looks like a river bed with large boulders washed down over the years. Spectacular.
