Description

Al Qarah Mountain, which is also known as "Jabal al Qarah" and "Al Shaban Mountain," is located in the Eastern Province, Al Ahsa, in Saudi Arabia and is a UNESCO world heritage site. 

The caves

Al Qarah Mountain is known for its fascinating and unique caves that were formed due to the dissolving process of water-soluble rocks, the collapse of the upper rock layers as a result of abrasion, and earthquake fissures.

Some of the caves in the Al Qarah Mountain are particularly famous, like the Al Nashab cave, which has moderately steady temperatures throughout the year. Some caves are also used to hold workshops for local traditional potters. The caves have 28 tall linear passageways, which are a total of 1.5 kilometers in length.

Some of the most famous caves in the mountain include Bu Saleh, Al Eid, An Naqa, Al Mua'adhamah, and Al Maheub. Locals and tourists love to visit to admire the incredible heritage site and learn about the history by exploring the caves with tour guides.

The historic site in Al Hofuf eastern province in Saudi. The place for visiting in holidays with family and friends. Nice and beautiful visiting point. Entrance fee little high.

Sweet escape from the city. Beautiful creation of God. People are very kind and welcoming. You should visit the small booth where you can have free lectures about the land of civilization. They will welcome you with arabic coffee and maamoul. A must when you visit Hofuf. The cave was so cold and clean and well maintained. Kudos to the people who came up into developing this area

Amazing place. Very quaint. A true miracle with the significant drop of temperature inside the place compared to outside. Definitely worth a visit!

I prefer the old version the time when it was not developed. It is more natural and nature view.
