Al Baha is one of the regions of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia that is frequented by vacationers inside and outside the Kingdom and the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council for its natural beauty and millions of old agricultural terraces dating back thousands of years. Other than the valleys and rivers that pour their waterfalls at the highest peaks, the area is also full of forests and nature parks. Sitting at 2,500 meters above sea level, the city enjoys moderate temperatures and is an ideal place to hike, picnic or camp. The ancient Ghamid and Zahran tribes forged a unique cultural identity in the area, building 1,001 stone qasbah lookout towers that are only found here, as well as setting up a bustling souq. Drive out of the city around winding mountain bends and past apricot and pomegranate orchards to discover more than 40 forests surrounding the city. The road to the famous marble village of Dhee Ayn, which takes you through Tolkienesque valleys and past ruined towers, is almost as spectacular as the site itself.
