#1: The Corner

(visited by Petra Maissenbacher and Jörg Pfänder)

13-Feb-2004 -- The point is part of one of the largest sand deserts of the world, the Rub` al-Khāliy desert. The point marks also the border between the Sultanate of Oman and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and as here is a bend in the straight border line, the point is called "The Corner". Absolutely impressive to stand in this place!

  Notes
According to digitized map data, the borderline to Saudi-Arabia is running exactly through the Confluence, while forming a slight bend there. The borderline's legs are running from here in approx. directions WSW and NNE.
