Tabuk Region

Stretching south and continuing along the eastern shore of the Red Sea, the red deserts of Wadi Rum gradually run into the red deserts of the Tabuk Region. Though sparsely inhabited by most standards, the region abounds in subtle indicators of its diverse and storied past: archeological remnants, local legends, striking landscapes. For centuries, the region was a major thoroughfare for traders and pilgrims, and most major Middle Eastern civilizations left traces of their presence in the area. Inscriptions on the Tabuk Region’s red rock structures appear in a number of ancient, nearly forgotten languages; and the region’s raw beauty and mystique have attracted the attention of generations of explorers and adventurers.
