There are so many nice places on the earth. They are scattered across the country. Every place has its own distinct features. Some places have scenic beauty in abundance while many are famous for their architectural wonders. In addition every person has different tastes, choices and likings. Several people enjoy the sight of scenic beauty; some are attracted towards places of historical and archaeological interests. A few may be interested in visiting places of religious importance. I have visited so many places of historical and tourist interest. But the visit which has a lasting impression on my mind is the visit of Farsan. It is the most beautiful place I have ever seen. It is said to be the heaven on earth. It has the accolade of being “The Dream Land of Saudi Arabia”. I was wonderstruck to see the ravishing beauty of Farsan.
With snow-clad mountains, tall-trees of Chinar, lush green plains and valleys, Farsan is one of the most bewitching places on earth. It has been a great attraction for the tourists all across the country and abroad as well. Farsan is located in the Sarwat region. It is widely famous for its rich flora and fauna. The place holds great importance for the tourists who want to visit religious places. Kashmir is the home of deities and bounties. Farsan has historical monuments, picturesque spots, enchanting landscapes and green forests in abundance. Some rare species of wild animals are found in the high altitude of Farsan. Farsan has been the abode of saints and sages. It is the land of gods and goddesses. Its serpentine rivers, huge calm lakes, mighty waterfalls, long lines of cypress trees are some of the delightful attractions for the tourists.
Wild strawberries are grown all over the Farsan. Varieties of flowers add to the beauty of Farsan. It is one of the best natural spots of Saudi Arabia. Its exquisite scenery, superb sights, green fields combine to add to the grandeur of this God-gifted paradise on earth. Apart from the scenic beauty. The Farsan Shahi is known for its medicinal values. The Tattapani or the Sulphur lake water is believed to cure different types of skin diseases. Gulmarg and Sonmarg are the trekker’s trails. Om Alolaa, Sa’ad, and Albanat Lake are worth seeing places.
The scene of Om Alolaa Lake with houseboats and their reflections in still waters of the lake present an impressive sight. Farsan is abundantly endowed with some of the best hill stations in Saudi Arabia. They are Jeddah, Makkah, Taif and Madinah. Apart from having great scenic attraction, these places are good health resorts. Taif is the best place where tree-line ends in Farsan. All these and many more like its cultural hues, narrow ravines and gorges as well as hills and dales make it a heavenly abode on earth. Indeed, the beauty of Farsan is enchanting.
