Stargazing in AlUla


Ever wondered why a dark sky is so coveted? You only need to understand how light pollution from cities dims the capacity to see stars and constellations. As the sun sets here, its beautiful hues of orange, pink and gold are the prelude to a magical excursion once the sky drops its curtain. We all live under the same sky, but its clarity and unfathomable beauty are a spectacular sight to behold in the ancient desert realm of AlUla.
Tilting your eyes skyward and witnessing a dark horizon lit up by an infinity of twinkling stars is a deeply moving experience.
