About Abha

Saudi Arabia's Abha city, capital of the Asir province, is located in the southwest of the country. With its high altitude, fresh air and beautiful nature, Abha is the country's most important domestic tourism point. The city is also home to the highest peak in the Arabian Peninsula, some government ministries, and offices of the royal family. A valley at an altitude of 2200 metres, Abha provides relief to many Saudis, especially in the summer. Both the city center and the surrounding mountains are rich in verdant nature. The Souda Park and Abha Dam Lake, located over 3000 metres above sea level, attract tens of thousands of both domestic and foreign tourists each year.

Built in the 1800s in the city and for use of the royal family is a palace that was recently opened up to the public. Today, the palace is open as a museum which displays elements of the local culture.

The city's most important architectural structure is the Abha Grand Mosque. The region is served by Abha International Airport, with direct flights available from the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Egypt, Yemen and Oman.
