There are several other landmarks on the journey from Riyadh to Edge of the World, as Almahmoud explained.

“From the first century BCE to the fourth century CE, Al-Faw was an important trade route,” he explained.

Edge of the World is located in the Tuwaiq cliffs that run through central Saudi Arabia.

Known as the Frankincense Trail, the trade route passed through Hadramout in present-day Yemen to Persia, while the western route traveled through the Roman Empire.

The vast desert stretched out below me and I had the illusion that I was indeed, standing at the edge of the world.
