In Saudi Arabia
How Geocaching Works
The cache lies in the area between Al Heet and Fort Abu Juffan and requires 4x4 - it is not particularly difficult driving.
The area can be approached from all sides except from the Wadi Hariyah direction.
From Al Heet the first part of the trip involves crossing the escarpment and 2 hill lines before breaking out into a fairly level gravel area. Entering agricultual areas one runs into the fingers of tarmac coming in from Al Kharj and travellers now need to navigate the "Battle of the Bunds" to get into open sandy areas where the route to the cache is easily established across flat sandy low hills.
The approach from Al Heet or Al Kharj is a very interesting journey through different landscapes and farms and well worth the trip.
This is a standard cache with a cream lid with "goodies" for both adults and children - the search is suitable for children.
