Jabal AlFil (Elephant Rock)

Jabal AlFil (Elephant Rock)

Elephant Rock

Set in golden desert sands and climbing three storeys into the Saudi Arabian sky, is the awe-inspiring Elephant Rock (also known as Jabal AlFil), one of AlUla’s many geological marvels.

Unlike the ornate, hand-carved facades of nearby Hegra’s Nabataean tombs, the "trunk" and "body" of this monolithic red sandstone beast were shaped by natural forces — millions of years of wind and water erosion.

The beauty of the unrefined structure is enhanced by a landscape of golden sands, studded with rocky outcops, many of which are equally impressive in size and have interesting shapes and figures.
