The suspense and thrills may be light but filled with stunning sights. Al Waslah Park is part of the Al Uraidh Valley, which offers a picture of simplicity, serene and unaltered natural good looks of the mountain landscape and farmlands. With about a 5 km drive away from the city's outskirts, you have the opportunity to start seeing the desert in its exquisite untold laidback exterior as the colors of the green trees.

Grasses and other plants intermingle with the golden color of rocks, hills, and farms.

You don't need to worry about what car to use going there because it is reachable by any car and can immediately and easily find you a place to settle beneath the shade of the trees or beside the hills.

These are the cute things you can enjoy at Al Waslah Parkside of Al Uraidah Valley.

For basic free mountain climbing, this mountain perfectly fits to start with:

  • The slope at the start is usually scalable.

  • As you get into the middle of the climb, you start experiencing the thrills.

  • You will encounter rocks you need to scale up to advance going to the top during the past half of the climb.

  • Closing to the top. You just knew you had conquered something beyond your usual limit.

  • At the top, enjoy looking at the entire state park of Al Waslah, see the cars running, and the people doing picnics below the mountain.

On your way down, again, you will feel the same thrill climbing, but as you have started conquering your doubts in free mountain climbing, you will think of doing again on a little higher degree of thrills.

How to Get to the Place

It is easy and accessible by all types of vehicles. 21 km away from the Kingdom Center and 40 minute- drive.

It is much easier from the city center if you drive via Al Shifa and Dirab, passing through Dirab Road. A more or less half a kilometer away from the Dirab Security Checkpoint, take the left turn, the Road 5399 connecting Dirab to Haeer.

About 4-5 km away from the left turn area, you will see a park to the left side, find the entry area and follow the car trail on the way to the cove point. Google direction will point to you the location.

I suggest you drive a car with high clearance but not necessarily a 4x4 drive. Those who are driving a low clearance car are more likely you need to park it farther from the base of Mt. Uraida. But not much a problem because the distance from Road 5399 is approximately 2km away.
