We were fortunate enough to visit the site twice. Five minutes into our first visit, a downpour greeted us; this was quite a rare and awesome experience given very few people can claim that they have been to the site, yet alone seen the site in rain since it only rains 12 days a year
On our first night we went to the mountaintop in Al Ula known as King Abdulaziz National Park. From the top you get a breathtaking view of the town. The Sunset isn’t as striking because the view looks out into the East but nonetheless, a great spot .
