Last weekend, with our apartment’s internet down, we decided to explore Qatar in search of Geocaches.
Al Khor Ruins
Located fifty kilometres north of Doha a small coastal city named Al Khor. Our first stop was a cache named “Al Khor Ruins”. Al Khor Ruins are an abandoned collection of mud brick houses which we both imagined would look similar to being in Iraq.
Qatar Al-Jassasiya Petroglyphs (rock carvings)
Al-Jassasiya, located North East of Qatar are an extensive collection of rock carvings. The rock carvings are of geometric shapes, fish and dhows.
About eighty kilometres North of Doha is Fuwairit Beach. Located on the beach are small rocky ‘cliffs’ separating the beach sand from the dessert scrub.
Al Gamel (Al Jumail)
North of Qatar is the old abandoned fishing town of Al Gamel.
Al Zubarah Fort
A beautiful 1938 year old fort built using traditional Qatari technique. It was our second time visiting.
