The beautiful gardens and majestic mountain range of Hijaz will take you by surprise. Al Baha is small in size but impressive in its splendor. It is known for the majestic Sarawat mountain range, which is often enveloped in thick fog during the winter. The temperatures are moderate in the Tuhama plains.
The desert areas found in Aqeeq and Beljurashi are places of serenity where one can go to relax and enjoy the solitude of nature. Al Baha likely got its name for its location in a relatively open space compared to the locations of neighboring villages. Baha in Arabic refers to a square or courtyard within a house.
Al Baha used to be a small village with few homes and remained unchanged until the 1990s, or the 13th century Hegira.
