With the onset of winter in the northern regions of Saudi Arabia, temperature degrees reach below zero with severe cold waves in December and January. Every year, residents in the region of Tabuk expect the arrival of the snow, which covers large areas in winter.
The snow covers the wild and mountainous areas; the most famous are the Jabal Al-Lawz area and Al-Dhahr Alqan. With snow covering these areas, it turns into beautiful destinations that attract not only residents of the region but also visitors and tourists to enjoy this scenic natural landscape.
Amidst this spectacular view, local glimpses appear in the form of camel herds and cattle grazing in these white deserts, which miss the color of its golden sand during snowfall times.
