Just outside the barbed wire fence of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Madain Saleh, in Saudi Arabia, is the towering Athleb Mountain. They’re a breathtakingly gorgeous wonder that withstood the burning temperature of the desert.
Athleb Mountain is just a few kilometers away outside Al Ula in Tabuk Province.
If you’re driving around the premises of Madian Saleh, you can never miss this incredible landscape that will take your breath away.
They look like towering skyscrapers of a once progressive city in eons past.
The mountain’s spires are like one of those that you see in cathedrals in Europe with Gothic architecture.
And wherever / whichever angle you’d be in for a selfie, Athleb Mountain would never fail to be a photogenic natural wonder in the background.
Who can’t resist taking a million selfies with this kind of desert view? 😀
