Must visit this place if you are into photography! The landscape it just beautiful and there's not much you have to do, just clic your camera bottom and the picture will look amazing. You need a land cruiser to enter this place as there's lots of bumps in the sand. DONT GO DURING SUMMER TIME! I felt like in a... More

Its not marked at all how best to get there. Google Maps take you the long and very rough way. There is nothing to see! An abandoned film set with not even any shots from the movie! If you had the chance to stay at home and do nothing or see this, stay home.

This is a bit of challenge to find. There is a 'road' through the desert but often times difficult to follow. But it the drive to get there and finding it is an adventure. Can drive a regular car in the dry season.

It is very difficult to reach the film city because there are no sign boards or route maps available. The destination itself is like ruins. There is not much maintenance done. The gate keeper will charge you as per his desire to enter the destination

getting to film city and the close by mystery village was quite a task... google maps shows you the wrong directions...the correct way to get there is to reach zekreet village and then drive into the desert following some boards which leads you all the way up to film city and then to mystery village... there is nothing much once...

its a long way out but its nice to sometimes just go out and see what's lurking in the desert as opposed to the busy city life.

My first visit was by chance, the idea was to to go to Zekreet beach, we were told then that its few KM away. My advice is not to go unless a part of a package to Zekreet. Get there early in your 4WD car , get every thing you need for BBQ enjoy some time filming, selfieing in the... More

We made this trip last weekend, and I am not sure about the need for 4x4. There are well defined gravel roads that take you right to the site without the need for serious navigation. Having navigated from the old road next to the current Highway and exiting through Zekreet, I would recommend the Zekreet route. Just pass through the... More
