Make your way to the very popular tourist destination (though you will most likely still have it all to yourselves!) known as the Kharaz Rock Bridge. This is a massive natural arch a short drive NE of Disi. Jebel Kharaz is the big tower standing to the left of the Kharaz Rock Bridge (arch). You can drive to the base of the tower and arch where you will frequently find a Bedouin Camp offering tea.

Getting There
