Al-Qarah Mountain located to the east of Al-Ahsa, is a major tourism attraction and natural and historical landmark in the Kingdom.
It covers an area of 1,400 hectares and consists of sedimentary rocks towering 70 meters high. Its caves have their own distinctive climate and the mountain is associated with Ras Al-Qarah — a rocky peak in the center of Al-Qarah town.
Al-Qarah Mountain, which is 210 meters above sea level and formed by limestone, draws visitors from Saudi Arabia, Gulf states and countries throughout the world. Temperatures inside the mountain are surprisingly low in summer and high in winter. This photo of Al-Qarah Mountain was taken by the Saudi photographer Wajdi Al-Mensari as part of the Colors of Saudi competition.
Correction: A previous headline stated Al-Qarah Mountain is in Asir, it is not. It’s in Al-Ahsa.
