JEDDAH: The Shada Mountain in Baha region is one of the most beautiful tourist attractions in the Kingdom, and perhaps in the Middle East, due to its unique geological formation.
The mountain includes caves and grottoes engraved with drawings and inscriptions dating back to more than 3,000 years.
Due to weather conditions in the region, the local rocks offer unique scenery, as many of them resemble the forms of different animals.
Saudi Arabia and its leadership are keen to promote Saudi heritage sites as part of Vision 2030.
This month, Prince Sultan bin Salman, president of the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage (SCTH), ordered the continuation of archaeological excavations at Jarash.
Excavation work will continue with the participation of students from King Khalid University, said Mohammed Al-Umrah, director of the SCTH in the Asir region.
