Edge of the World, Riyadh
The Edge of the World is a spectacular escarpment or bluff in the middle of the desert about an hour or hour and a half to the west of Riyadh. It is best to go there with someone who has been there before (and who has a reliable GPS), as getting to the spot requires knowledge of a track that is off the paved highway. You should also have a well-built SUV or truck, as a small car is likely to have its undercarriage punctured by a rock. It's best to go out to the Edge of the World a couple of hours before dusk on a relatively calm day (i.e. when there is not a lot of wind or particulate matter in the air). The daylight will allow you to photograph the escarpment and the fingers of Allah (craggy, sharply pointed spindles of rock that jut out of the floor of the desert). As the sun goes down and the desert prepares for one of its beautiful sunsets, your vantage point will provide you with an exquisite view of one of nature's glories.

Edge of the World is located up straight from the Acacia Valley. This place is also called the rock framed window because from the cliffs you can see a dramatic view of the plains below.
The view wasnt clear when we went there coz its very windy and dusty but a little glimpse from down below is really relaxing.
Climb up the cliff and breath the fresh air...relax and feel the atmosphere :-) It was one of a kind experienced especially when it was just me and my hubby who were at the area.
The desert travel was a bit scary worrying about flat tires, engine failure and taking the very steepy slopes and rocky roads. Nevertheless, it was a fun and memorable experienced.
