Nestled between Mount Shammer to the north and Mount Salma to the south, the city of Hail was once the capital of all the Arabian Desert and home to legends like Hatim Al Tai, the Arabian poet whose altruism earned him spots in stories like “One Thousand and One Nights” (also known as “Arabian Nights”).

The region also has a growing reputation as an arts, sports and entertainment destination.

The oasis of Jubbah is the remnant of an ancient lake that was rich in wetter periods with people, flora and wildlife. Today, owing to the relatively high water table and modern hydrological technology, Jubbah is a rapidly growing town. The sand sea of the Nafud Desert surrounds the 16 by 5 km (10 by 3 mi) windswept plain around Jubbah. To the west of the oasis is Jebel um Sanman, or “Two Camel-hump Mountain.” It is this rise of sandstone where some of the best rock art in the Arabian Peninsula can be found.
