4. Kharara National Park

Winter is actually the prime season to visit Al Kharara park due to the lake. Due to the heavy rainfall, a natural lake forms right in the middle of the desert which you can totally paraglide over. Make sure you have a 4×4 because you’ll definitely need a big car to glide over the sand.
