16-Aug-2015 -- I had no plan to visit this confluence but I was on the way to my home in al-Dammām coming from Ḥā’il where my parents live.

I stopped in al-Riyāḍ for dinner and to get sometimes for rest in. By chance I was reviewing the internet to discover how near this spot was to my way. So I decided to visit it around noon. I drove from al-Riyāḍ about 34 km towards al-Dammām and turned to the Rumāḥ road for another 6 km, then turned left to this spot near a high tension voltage line.

When I reached the point at 12:35 pm I found a lot of sheep corrals there. I took some photos and drove back to al-Dammām along the highway.


لا يوجد خطط لزيارة أي ملتقى لكن بالصدفة اكتشفت مدى قرب هذا الملتقى لطريقي وانا باتجاه الدمام حيث كنت عائدا من حائل بعد زيارة عائلتي. توقفت بالرياض للراحة والغداء وأثناء تصفح الانترنت قررت زيارة هذا الملتقى. انطلقت من الرياض الساعة 12:00 ظهرا على طريق الدمام السريع وبعد 35كم انعطفت الى طريق رماح لمسافة 6 كم ثم انعطفت يسار الى الملتقى ووجد الكثير من أحواش الأغنام حولها

وصلت الساعة 12:35 بعد الظهر وتم التقاط بعض الصور وغادرت باتجاه الدمام
