you wont believe the temp, when its approx. 40 in Jeddah its actually 22 to 23 there, also its just 2 hours away drive, so can really enjoy the weather. Recommend if you are going from Jeddah take the outskirts road as its mostly empty and nice road.

Best place. Jabal Dakkā (Arabic: جَبَل دَكَّا) or "Mount Dhaka", is the highest mountain in the area of the town of Ash-Shafā (Arabic: ٱلشَّفَا, lit. 'The Cure'),[1] about 20 km (12 mi) from the city of Taif, located in the western region of Saudi Arabia.[2]The height of the top of the mountain is between 2,500 and 2,900 metres (8,200 and 9,500 feet) above sea level, this has caused a controversy with the timing of the sunset for Ramadan, as the sun stays on the peak two minutes longer than the surrounding area. To resolve the controversy a panel of religious scholars visited the mountain to observe sunset.[3] The committee of legitimacy, including a member of the Supreme Council of Saudi Scholars Abdullah al-Mutlaq determined that the peak need not adhere to calendar.The mountain is located 20 kilometres (12 miles) south-west of Taif. It overlooks the Shifa tourist center. The mountain is used to know the dates of prayer, fasting and breakfast in the month of Ramadan. The vegetation of the mountain is covered with juniper trees, the plant covers the bottom of the mountain and then gradually thins out until it reaches the top. The temperature of the top reaches below 0 °C (32 °F) in the winter. The mountain has a tourist resort just 7 km (4.3 mi) away from the Shifa.[4]

What a beautiful landscape. Worth the visit here. It's good to make camping here for sure, and the weather is very nice , it reminds me of Tagaytay in the Philippines the weather is very much the same. You will surely feel connected to mother nature, I did miss my hiking adventure upon visiting this place. ❤️❤️❤️

What a wonderful experince driving to the very top of the mountain. Make sure to drive to the very top. There is a halfway lookout point and coffee shop but for a better view continue driving. Dress warm as it is cold up there and windy. With clouds covering the mountain top. Drive carefully and be aware of fog and mist, the road is very narrow.
