This is the highest peak in Malta. It's location is somewhat unclear--the area atop the Dingli Cliffs is relatively flat, and several points could be the highest. The main point shown here is near the town of Dingli. The secondary point is near the large radar "golf ball" nearby. The third point listed here is to the southeast, near a large quarry. This point is sometimes given the name of Ta'Dmejrek, but some maps show that label near the Dingli locations.

Any peakbagger wishing to claim the high point of Malta should explore all these areas.
