Geocache Description:



Jebel Dist, by tourists also called the Magic Mountain or the Pyramid Mountain because of its symmetrical sides and pointed peak is located some 17 km north of town of Bawiti. It offers impressive views of the oasis, desert, and 1000s of palm trees. Some archaeologists believe that Jebel Dist served as a model for the man-made pyramids.
In 1914, German paleontologist Ernst Stromer von Reichenbach found remains of dinosaurs in the area of Jebel Dist and a neaby Jebel Maghrafa. 
The cache is hidden on the top of the mountain, slightly off its peak. Getting it requies quite a good condition as climbing the mountain takes at least 30 minutes.
