Yes, that’s right. I wore flip flops climbing mountains in Al Ula. They’re not your ordinary mountains but rocky mountains which can be dangerous when you step on imbalanced rocks. I didn’t bring my shoes because no one told me we were gonna climb mountains. It was supposed to be just a hike – but when we started going up and carefully holding rugged rocks for grips and safety, we knew that was going to be an arduous climb.
It’s worth it though. The feeling of reaching the summit was indescribable and the views were magnificent. We were directly overlooking the camping site we were staying and it was amazing! My crocs flip flops made it to the top and I’m sure they were proud of their achievement. 😀
Enjoy the climb. And the views from up there. 😀
When you are in Al-Ula, I think you stay for a night or two. Staying in a hotel? Nah. Try something new – go camping in the desert! You should go camping – an experience you won’t forget. We stayed both in Sahary Al Ola Camp and Madakhil Camp. If one is full, we choose the other. If camping in the desert is not your thing, you can always stay at Al Ula Arac Hotel downtown.
