Wadi Lajab - Jizan - Saudi Arabia
Wadi Lajab, in Jazan, is considered one of the most beautiful touristic areas in the KSA. It is a canyon infiltrated by streams, which have carved a narrow path between two large mountains. It is part of the Saudi Tihamah valleys and is considered a park for residents and visitors alike. The valley is 11 km long and water flows in its southern side. Its steep sides are as high as 300 meters in some parts. The narrow and incredibly deep valley offers some quite dramatic viewpoints. But the most incredible feature of Wadi Lajab is the fact that it delivers fresh water more regularly than any other wadi in Saudi Arabia. The stream that runs at the bottom of the canyon creates mid-sized waterfalls and the numerous ponds are deep enough to host fish and travelers who want to enjoy a bath. Together with the colorful sand rocks formations, Wadi Lajab is a truly breathtaking experience.
