(visited by Abdullah al-Mansour, Abdulaziz al-Ajaji, Abdulrahman al-Ajaji and Muhammad al-Mansour)

08-Jul-2006 -- On 8 July 2006, after having visited 24N 42E, we decided to visit the next confluence point that also was not visited before. We continued driving to the North and reached the confluence 25N 42E at noon.

The distance between the two confluence points is about 110 km (straight line). The land is rocky and is located near a town named Badā'i` al-Ḥamāmayn, the weather was very hot with a temperature around 44 degrees Celsius. This confluence point is located in the Najd highlands.

After collecting some pictures, we returned back to our town.
