1. Climb The AlUla Stairway

AlUla keeps on adding things so that no matter how recently you’ve visited, you come back and there’s more to do. One of the most recent additions is the AlUla Stairway, a suspended ladder stairway that takes visitors 45 metres above the valley floor. This unique attraction is the first of its kind in the region, and it is sure to provide unforgettable memories for those who dare to climb it. Once there, they can enjoy the stunning views of the valley before ziplining back down to the ground.

Jabal Soudah is one of the highest peaks in the country. There is a popular trekking trail that runs from the valley on the mountain’s western side all the way to its summit. The trail is said to be centuries old and used to be frequented by traders, linking up the coastal plains with the high plateau above before modern roads were built. The trekking route passes through scenic valleys, ridges, and forests.
