AlQarah Mountain – Documentary

I saw a lot of artistic photos from AlQarah Mountain which is located in AlHasa, Eastern Province in Saudi Arabia but never seen what’s it like to be on the top of it, I spent one cold morning walking around a small area on the top of the mountain in order to explore the amazing view and the different texture up there, I admit the timing isn’t the best, but I wanted to document it anyway. By the way the name came from AlQarah village which is located directly west of the mountain

رأيت الكثير من الصور الفنية لجبل القارة المعروف والذي يقع في محافظة الأحساء بالمنطقة الشرقية في السعودية ولكن لم أرى حقيقة الكثير من تضاريسه في قمته الشبه مسطحة، أمضيت أحد الصباحات الباردة أتمشى في منطقة صغيرة لأستكشف بعض المناظر الرائعة والتضاريس المثيرة للاهتمام هناك، أعترف بأن الوقت لم يكن الأفضل ولكن أردت توثيق ذلك على أي حال. بالمناسبة اسم الجبل نسبة إلى قرية القارة والتي تقع مباشرة غرب الجبل

All photo taken in December 2015


Almost the top, shows part of the west side of the mountain, the far right the public water drink tank and in the far center shows a separate part of the mountain


The west side view is for AlQarah village and in the center of it there is AlQarah Head Mountain which is known for this name in this area, also called AlMashgar Mountain. It remains in the center between the houses forming a large roundabout






The texture on top of the mountain is pretty interesting as it’s a large area of this view with lots of holes leads to the caves inside the mountain, so walking here at night is really dangerous


The east side of the mountain shown with a large fields of palm trees which are famous in AlHasa


The north side shows more of the mountain and another village called AlTowaither village


A communication tower for government use which was the reason there was a road from the west side

Sadly I didn’t go to the south side of the mountain because of the large area. Hopefully you like this photo essay, thanks for visiting!
