Introducing Asir National Park

This national park was Saudi Arabia’s first and contains some of the Kingdom’s most spectacular scenery, with mountains reaching nearly 3000m before plunging down to the coast. The park encompasses some 450,000 hectares stretching from the Red Sea, across the mountains and east into the desert. The park’s territory is not contiguous, with pockets of land (separated by towns, villages and farmlands) fenced off for protection.
