The desert heat is not for the faint hearted so bewell prepared. The desert is breathtakingly beautiful and the colours of the mountains and rock formations will amaze you. If you travel south this is a must see.

Amazing views, history and tranquility. Arrive early morning, it opens 8:00 am. Watch a short movie at the visitor center. Be ready for the short hikes with the suitable footwear and plenty of water.

I often visit this park to breath untouched nature and to capture it day and night as a photographer. Highly recommended it.

Very insightful, a must to understand the meanings behind the tabernacle. Well built replica, great guides and you get to fill a bottle with colored sand from the nature reserve

This place comes with many attractions for all ages. You can see the ancient copper mines, different nature spots like Solomon’s Pillars and a lot of hiking and activities like pedal boats on small lake, colored sand bottling for kids, camping and more. It is better to reach the place by car as the size of the place is huge.

We found the road pretty good compared to many of the other tracks that we travelled during our time in the area. Lake is good for migrating birds in spring. Speaking for myself, this attraction is brilliant - but then I'm... More

Eye-catching geological formations; also, it was very interesting to learn how copper was mined here back in Biblical times.
