Overview

You can walk/climb to the Gebel al Ingleez, north-east of Bawiti. At the flat top are the remains of a castle from the first world war, built by captain Williams to control the area. From the top, but also half way, you have a nice view at the surrounding mountaineous and bare area.

There is a bit of hike to get to final lookout area which is the remains of a basalt fortress built by British troops during WW1 as a lookout to monitor Libyan incursions but once there, the walk is worth it.

The place with history (there are ruins of a military post from WWII) and great views especially during sunset. We could relax there looking down the Oasis.

This hike takes about 1 hour from the bottom and the view just before sunset is lovely. You need someone to drive you to the bottom so hire a driver for a few hours, its cheap.
