“Having reached the plain the road ran for eight miles over a broken surface… it then forked. The left, which is about six miles the longer of the two, most be taken after rains, and leads to Devil’s Hole. … We chose the shorter cut and after eight miles rounded Mountain Point, the end of a dark brown vuute falling into the plain.”

Sir Richard Burton, September 29, 1860
