During the 1st millennium BCE, the city of Dadan developed due to its strategic location on the frankincense trade road. The Nabatean people coming from Petra settled 30 kilometres north of Dadan in Al-Hijr where they built monumental tombs similar to the ones they dug in Petra.We have time for lunch in the centre of AlUla where there is a good choice of restaurants, then continue to the Old City of AlUla. The city had nearly 900 houses and five town squares and the remains of some of the original stone and mudbrick buildings can still be seen today.

We will also get to visit some of the seven mosques from a distance.

Once we have passed the crest peaking at nearly 2,000 meters above sea level, we will descend down the eastern side towards the city of Taif.Taif, thanks to its location above 1,600 meters benefits from cooler weather, especially in summer when people travel there for its greenery, lower temperatures, beautiful scenery and relaxed atmosphere.

Al Ahsa also hosts an ancient secret: the Greek geographer Strabo described an ancient Arab kingdom whose capital Gerrha had "fancy tools made out of gold and silver, large homes which have their doors, walls and roofs filled with gold, silver, and holy stones". Until today this site has not been found by archaeologists but one of the candidates is Al Hofuf.
