When you are in front of the Tombs, check this sign and go to the Al-Khubtha Trail. Then you will find some stairs

 

After the stairs try to ask some locals or people on the way, you have to continue walking atright between hills to get here.

«Advice» Don´t come here late in the afternoon as the night may come and it will be hard to make all the way back without light.
