Saudi Arabia has been explored for its cultural & heritage sites. Post that, the restaurant scene of the kingdom is outgrowing at its best. But there’s one more attraction that catches the eye of the tourists. Aseer National Park is nature’s escape and a warm welcome to people who have a keen interest in flora and fauna. Holding more than 300 species, this national park attracts visitors from around the world.
Aseer National Park
One of Saudi Arabia’s most pristine wilderness places is Aseer National Park. It is also the first national park in the nation to cover more than 1,600 square km. More than 300 different bird and animal species call it home as well. The national park was established in the latter half of the 1980s.
It has a number of picnic and camping areas, as well as nature walks, hiking routes, and other amenities. Due to the fact that various migrating birds can be seen here at specific periods of the year, the National Park is also a well-liked destination for bird watchers. A vehicle safari that will assist you in discovering all the fascinating areas of the park is another option.
3 Activties Tourists Can Enjoy Here!
1. Glamping or Camping
The unobstructed view of the starry skies makes it a loving spot for the stargazers. To make it easy for visitors, all of these locations are marked with dots on the park map. Other than these campgrounds, the rest of the park is still completely covered by wild terrain.
An ideal hiking trek is to the juniper-lined Jebel Soudah, particularly in the summer. When wintertime temperatures go below average, it can get very cold and even snow. Before leaving, check the weather because you don’t want to run into a foggy situation.
3. Explore Local Eateries
Start your journey with a brekkie point. Visitors can enjoy a short lunch and a cup of coffee at one of the many cafés in the area. Tourists should keep in mind that a trip to the park will take at least 5 hours. Before entering the wilderness, make sure everyone is fed.
