Located in the Asir region, Al-Majarda village is home to a wide range of wildlife and rare plants. Visitors arrive in search of the sounds of nature as well as the sight of green growth and waterfalls.
Visitors to the villages in the northern Majarda governorate can enjoy spectacular sights from the mountainside of Tahawi, famous for its volcanic rock. Heavy rain in the areas since Ramadan has increased growth in valleys and on mountainsides, as well as pastures.
Temperatures in the area can change quickly, and visitors can look forward to both cool and warm conditions, thanks to roads that connect low-lying areas with high mountains.
Village residents rely on corn, millet, bananas and coffee beans for employment and income generation. They also trade and sell livestock and farm products in local and surrounding centers.
