Visitors to the Dalagan Valley, 30 km outside Abha in the Kingdom’s southwest, can enjoy the sights and sounds of nature in full bloom.
The scenic valley is home to a wide variety of bird species, plants and trees, and offers the ideal escape from the stresses of city life.
One of the most eye-catching plants is the cacti, with bright orange fruit called barshoom. The fruit is carefully picked by local vendors, peeled and packed, and sold in nearby markets.
Benches and swings in the valley are made from wood or stone to blend with the natural surroundings.
During winter fog is a frequent occurrence, limiting visibility and adding to the valley’s ethereal atmosphere.
