Day 6 - 7

Dissah and Tabuk

Today you will drive towards Tabuk. You will explore the village and then start into the Wadi Al Dissa - a 15km long canyon that runs through the mountain massif Jebel Qaraqir. The next day you will get to know the region around Madian - or as it is called today Al Bad. The region is still considered an insider tip; but even here you can find the stone carved funerary monuments similar to Petra, Jordan. Afterwards, you will take a tour of one of Saudi Arabia's magical natural wonders that amazes visitors. This incredible natural wonder of Tabuk province is located on the Gulf of Aqaba, just 15 km north of the coastal town of Maqna. As you approach the road that runs along the turquoise waters and white beaches of the Gulf of Aqaba, the first thing you notice is the imposing shape of the 600-meter granite massif of Tayeb Al-Ism, whose sharp edges drop into the Gulf of Aqaba. On the other side of the mountain, facing the water, a narrow canyon reveals itself. A wooden bridge spans the cliffs, allowing pedestrians to venture deeper into the mountain. From the bridge, visitors to Tayeb Ism will see another wonder, a small stream with crystal clear water. Here you will have the opportunity to see the sunset in this beautiful valley before continuing the journey to Tabuk.
