Check out Jebal Jassassiyeh, a collection of around 900 petroglyphs depicting scorpions, donkeys, turtles and curious aerial views of boats, giving a glimpse into ancient Qatar. The area is also full of thick-finned fish fossils. Currently, you need government permission to enter the site, but the paperwork is worth it. Alternatively, Regency Travel and Tours offers a three-hour trip with a guide for QR200-QR850 per person, depending on group size. www.regencyholidays.com
