Faisal Bin Fahd Al Souda Palace

Situated at an elevation of 3,000 meters in Saudi Arabia’s Asir region, Al Soudah is a breathtaking mountainous area perched on the side of the kingdom’s highest mountain Jabal Sawda. Featuring majestic mountains covered with lush green juniper trees, this gorgeous region has everything one could ask for in an incredible tourist destination.

At 3,000 meters, perched on the side of Saudi Arabia’s highest mountain, the juniper-covered Soudah is the unofficial outdoor adventure capital of Saudi Arabia. Part of the vast Aseer National Park, with its network of hiking routes, this is an area of cool mountain air, wild nature and mist-cloaked valleys. While hiking and guided camping trips are quintessential activities, this is also an area of ancient tribal culture — especially at the historic village of Rijal Almaa west of Soudah. Here, the annual Flowerman Festival showcases the culture of the indigenous Aseri tribe, including the men wearing flower wreaths as headdresses.
