Wadi Lajab - Jazan Province

4.9

Description

Wadi Lajab is a valley situated between two high mountains near Jazan in Saudi Arabia. It lies in between a canyon that is 30 kilometers wide and 5 kilometers long. Some people have also termed Wadi Lajab as ‘heaven in the desert’ because of its beauty.

Landscape 

The steep sides of these mountains are covered by thick moss, which makes it look like a hanging garden. The wadi offers some notable viewpoints as its steep sides are high in some parts and incredibly narrow and deep in others. Perhaps the most unique feature of Wadi Lajab is the fact that it has an abundant and never-ending supply of fresh water. 

Activities

Wadi Lajab is an excellent place for hiking and trekking; the Jazan Tourism Development Council has also approved Wadi Lajab as a tourist site where people can practice rock climbing. The stream in the valley runs at the bottom of the canyon and creates waterfalls where people go to bathe in the freshwater. The waterfalls make up several pools filled with pristine water, which are deep enough for people to swim. In order to make the most of this trip, be sure to wear comfortable shoes as there is a lot of hiking and climbing involved.

Wonderful place. It’s on way towards Jizan from Abha 185 km. Road till place is very nice. Only about 1 to 2 km road from highway to valley is bit rough. Inside valley small water fountain and lake is available. You can walk through water towards inside the valley with rocks. Nice photography can be done.

This place is breathtaking and should be visited by all. The track to the swimming hole is quite an adventure and is definitely not a walk in the park. There are ladders to be climbed, swimming involved so yes you will get wet and a cave to be explored . We got as far as the rainfall at the end but most people end up at the water hole. Few tips for those wanting to visit > Wear comfortable clothes light fabric if possible u will definitely get wet > Wear comfortable footwear > Bring a waterproof bag to keep belongings in, if not travel light. > Take your time (easily spend a day here we did ) > Enjoy the adventure and interact with the locals (friendly) > Don’t litter ! We went on a Friday so we saw a lot of people but so much fun ! Would easily visit this place again
