Saudi History & Hike in Summer

A Retracing of a 100-year-old hiking route through beautiful pathways & stories

Time travel with us to a space where bedouins once moved with their caravans through the mountains of Asir.

We’re excited to explore the trails of Gurun this summer. This is the oldest route in Soudah, a mountainous area in Southwestern Saudi Arabia. This hidden gem in Saudi Arabia is blessed by moderate weather throughout the year with temperatures rarely exceeding 25 °C (77 °F) in the summer.

We begin our journey at Mosque Gurun, remembering the ones who walked before us. Pay attention! You could hear the stories of the past as you cross an abandoned resting place before entering the forests.  Immerse into this distinct culture in the Soudah highlands, where you’ll meet the most friendly people wearing colourful traditional clothes including headbands and flower head wreaths. Breathe out and relax in the natural beauty of this unique summer destination in the Middle East.

Technicalities:

  • Start at 3000 m

Hike down to 2600 m elevation and then return!
