Ray of Hope papyrus riddleDescription: In the Qatara Depression there is only one place that isn’t dry and sad. At dawn’s first light, there is one near the valley’s entrance whose roots are halfway between Ra’s glory and Apophi’s shadow. Find me there but make haste, for Ra moves quickly.
The Qattara Depression that’s mentioned in the first sentence is a level 37-40 area, southwest from the Tomb of Alexander the Great, between Siwa to the west, and Iment Nome (level 6-8) to the east.
The second sentence can be a bit confusing if you don’t know exactly what it is about. The solution turns out to be a tree. Ra is the Sun god, and Apophi is known as the Enemy of Ra (or spirit of darkness). It’s not hard to figure out that these two battle at dawn, which is reflected on this tree specifically.
Your destination is in the western part of the Qattara Depression. The big hint is that it’s the “only place that isn’t dry”. If you zoom the map in over this part of the desert, you’ll spot a lake there. It creates an oasis in a valley with the entrance facing northeast. A vast number of tall palm trees can be seen from the distance there. The tree we are after is the first on the northeast – . It’s a bit further from the others, almost like it wants to defy the harsh nature and become a ray of hope.
