Area Gielinor
Quest required No

The Kharidian Desert is a vast and arid region of southwest Gielinor, with Al Kharid at its northernmost point and the cities of Menaphos and Sophanem at its southernmost point. The Bandit and Bedabin Camps form the western border, while the Uzer Mastaba is at the extreme east.

While Al Kharid is available to all players, everything south of the Shantay Pass is only available to members. The desert south of the pass will quickly dehydrate travellers not carrying suitable protection from the baking sun, though the various settlements in this land offer a safe haven.
