Shaped and sculpted over millions of years, these stunning landscapes and rock formations in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia are a sight to behold

The gorgeous sight of the cliffs and endless panoramic view of the plains below make Edge of the World an unforgettable tourist attraction. It even serves as a striking sight for rock climbing excursions.

Rock formations are usually the result of weathering and erosion sculpting the existing rock. Al-Louz mountain is the highest in Hisma and the most famous in the entire region.

Mushroom Rock, Abu Rakah
About 100 kilometres west of Al Ula near Abu Rakah, this rock looks like a big mushroom. It is said that wind and rain are the reason for the shape of the rock.

Elephant Rock, Al Ula

In the Al Ula region, there is a natural sandstone rock in the shape of an elephant with its trunk touching the ground. The elephant also appears to have an eye made of natural rock formation.

Mada’in Saleh, Al Madina Al Munawarrah Province

Proclaimed as the Kingdom’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site, Mada’in Saleh reflects the great skills of the masons of that time making delicate details on the entrance portals and the smooth surfaces of its 111 tomb façades.
