Mutla revisited

I revisited Mutla this weekend as some friends from work had read my previous post about this region and were intrigued by the landscape and wanted to see it for themselves. Luckily for us there wasn't much dust on Friday morning but the skies werent as cooperative as last time and hence the photos are not as good as before.

Its a shame not many expats know about this place and the look on my friend's faces was a clear indicator that the Mutla ridge is an impressive sight for a newcomer to Kuwait.

Heres the place on the map and the [Wikimapia link]

wow, it looks swell.. do we need a 4x4 to get there?
it would be swell to do a trip like this.. more important is it safe to do this with a single vehicle or do we need to go in groups?

Though I enjoy long drives.....I wudnt set out on such adventures, with so few souls. Wud rather prefer a dozen or more ppl with some solid body armour......wink.

Btw....were you the one....practising 'penalty' kicks?

Manal: yes its a beautiful place. You are welcome :)

purple: you dont really need a 4x4 to get there but if you want to venture off the main road and explore the desert in that area you need a capable vehicle.
Its safer to travel in a group.

Jonyboy: there were 6 of us ready for action so no worries. I was the one taking the photos and my friends were taking penalty shots. :)
