The awe-inspiring Sarawat Mountains were captured during an early morning drive from Taif to Jeddah.
Taif (الطائف) city, located in the Sarawat Mountains at an altitude of 1,879m, is renowned for its breathtaking beauty and majestic rugged charm. This Saudi hill station draws visitors with its mountain resorts and temperate climate. Taif’s rugged peaks, once submerged beneath the sea, have evolved into a stunning granite landscape. This transformation stands as a testament to nature’s enduring power, shaped by time and weather. The mountains are predominantly barren yet adorned with scattered juniper vegetation. The 23km Alhada road that meanders through the Sarawat Mountains towards the Taif plateau, is a four-lane highway offering travelers an opportunity to witness nature’s handiwork and experience the raw beauty of the region.
As you traverse this scenic route, the temperature fluctuates dramatically, unveiling the diverse climate of Taif’s terrain.
