What To Expect
Jabal AlFil (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
Admission Ticket Included
Place to Meet for Coffee
Elephant Rock was interesting. The best part of visiting the site however was talking to people there. It is free to visit and after 4:30 there are juice/coffee stands and a small restaurant open. The coffee and pineapple juice were nice.
Suggestione naturalistica…con contaminazioni!

Esteticamente, il roccione di vaga ispirazione morfologica elefantiaca (come da nome affibbiatogli con una certa perversa fantasia) è indubbiamente un luogo suggestivo (ma ce ne sono di migliori e ben più genuini nella stessa area di AlUla). A rovinare fascino e magia del luogo è l'aggressione intensivamente turistica apportata nei suoi dintorni da invadenti recinzioni, chioschi iper consumistici e poltroncine/tavoli di svariata natura, che assediano da vicino il sito. Naturalmente è un luogo da visitare, specie se siete nei paraggi, ma la suggestione della sua atmosfera è inevitabilmente compromessa. Consiglierei di cercarvi maggiori gratificazioni in altri siti, anche solo nell'area di AlUla, ben più esclusivi e incontaminati.
