The Asir Mountains feature beautiful views of the Tihama valleys, and are rich with spring water fountains, gardens and palaces.

The valleys descend to the west with deep and narrow corridors while nearby villages transform the landscape during the winter and autumn.

The Yabah Valley, located in the province of Al-Majardah, extends 100 kilometers to the Red Sea near Al-Qunfudah and has become a travel destination for nature-lovers.

Wadi Hali is the most important valley in the region. Its upper tributaries flow from Rijal Almaa in the south through Tihama Bani Shahr in the north. The waters descend from the Sarawat Mountains and through neighboring valleys before finally reaching the Red Sea.

Wadi Al-Bardani, located in Bariq, is 8 kilometers long and is famous for its flowing waters most of the year. Rare birds and wild animals make their home there.

Wadi Al-Ghayna matches the other valleys in beauty while Wadi Al-Sulayyil features rare perennial trees and has dense vegetation throughout the year.
