When in Riyadh, try to visit the Edge of the World. It's absolutely worth the roughly two hours drive. Although others may tell you otherwise, you'll need a 4x4 since the last 30 km are through off road terrain. Stunning views from breathtaking cliffs! Highly...More

Went to the place extremely early in the morning. The trail is dangerous in no light. Extremely exhilarating & a great place to go if you're an adrenaline junkie. A vehicle with a high ground clearance is required.

On a random adventure drive to Edge of the world with a group of 4 friends. A 4 X 4 wheel drive is required for this route. A bumpy off-roading in midst of mountains and sand.

There is a group going there every weekend. Some of the groups belong to travel clubs, etc., and will have a nice meal after arriving there. Some of the clubs remain longer.

Not too far. Less than 60 miles, It takes about 2.5 hours to drive there because it is off road. Don't attempt without a 4X4.
