The Lonely Castle 🏛 It’s hard to believe that places like this actually still exist out there— completely untouched and perfectly preserved, just the way they were left for thousands of years. This was probably one of the coolest and most unique photo locations and opportunities I’ve ever had the pleasure of shooting in my career so far. I am of only but a very lucky few individuals who has ever been given permission from the Saudi Government to bring a drone into the country and to these sites to capture them from a totally new and rarely before seen perspective to in turn show you all. Saying this place is incredible, I think, would be an understatement. 😳 Please note, the sites of Mada’in Saleh are currently closed to the public whilst the Royal Commission develops the area to allow for future tourism. I received an official invitation allowing me to document these ancient sites to share with you all. Please do your research extensively before you try to travel to these sites. #DiscoverAlUla #AlUla

Riding on the "magic carpet" to this unbelievable place! How did a rock turn into an elephant? The answer is by choosing the perfect angle 😉! Md: @chunjinggu.

I didn’t realize truly how big of a deal it was until someone came up to me and said “you’re making history by being here as a photographer you know?” *DISCLAIMER* Please note that the sites of Madain Saleh are currently closed to the public whilst the Royal Commission develops the area to allow for future tourism. @thatoneblondkid received an official invitation allowing him to film and document these sites to share it with you. #DiscoverAlUla #LivingMuseum #AlUla

Many people have not heard about Hegra, "Saudi Arabia's own Petra", located just outside the Al-Ula Valley. The ancient city of Hegra (also known as Madain Saleh) actually functioned as the Nabataean Kingdom’s southern capital from about the 1st century BCE into the 2nd century CE. You can read more about this mysterious desert city from the link in my Instagram profile! .edit: for those asking Madain Saleh site is temporarily closed due to an archeological survey in the area. . . . #explorearabia #sauditourism #alula #DiscoverAlUla #nabatean #ancientcivilization #madainsaleh #explorethearabworld #saudi_images #saudiexplorer #discoverksa #saudi_nature #petra #tombs #nabateankingdom #historynerd #neom #sheisnotlost #natgeotravel #nationalgeographic #amazingplaces #destinationearth #travelwithkids #adventuressarabia #visitsaudi #exploringfamilies #condenasttraveller #guardiantravelsnaps #lonelyplanet #beautifuldestinations

Guys, I have made it to Saudi Arabia 🇸🇦! Here on our first day we set off into the desert to Alula to visit Medain Salah - an ancient site etched into rock (that my people forgot to take a photo of me in front despite my asking of but I'll share it anyway😒). We ended our day with a 4x4 ride through the sand into a canyon where we enjoyed a bonfire and some Arabian tea (pictured) and music. It was a whirlwind of a day but even this tiny sloth managed to stay awake for 12 hours to enjoy the day!! . . *Medain Salah is currently closed for renovations but will be open for enjoyment again soon! #discoveralula #medainsaleh . . . #saudiarabia #middleeast #sloth #world_bestnature #slothmemes #wherewillwegonext #saudi #passportready #aroundtheworld #instavacation #instatravelling  #excursion #plushie #mytravelgram #travelblogger #slothstagram #alula #placestovisit #plushielife #plushiesofinstagram #beautifuldestinations #sloths #slothlove #placestogo #lonelyplanet #passionpassport #slothlover #travelholic

Do you believe in time travel? I always dreamed about it as a kid. A touch at the gate of Qasr al-Farid instantly took us back to the Nabataean Kingdom over 2000 years ago. I could hear those calm camel bells, smell the pungent spice and exotic perfumes passing just right in front of me. What a privilege to be connected with this ancient civilization through this special way! Md: @chunjinggu. Sponcored by the Royal Commission for Al-Ula and @winterattantora. Please note that the sites of Madain Saleh are currently closed to the public whilst the Royal Commission develops the area to allow for future tourism. It will be open officially in 2020. However, you could join @winterattantora every weekend till 9th Feb 2019 for a rare opportunity to this magic place. @yisunphotography has received an official invitation allowing him to film and document these sites to share it with you. #winterattantora #DiscoverAlUla #LivingMuseum #AlUla #saudiarabia #nightphotography #natgeo

2019 definitely has a great start! It was an absolute privilege to be able to explore Saudi Arabia in the next few days with the Royal Commission and @winterattantora to document #madainsaleh, the country’s first UNESCO site. Madain Saleh, also called "Al-Hijr" is one of the most important cities of the Nabatean Kingdom. It was truly magical to be here in total darkness to try some cool light painting photography with the beautiful @chunjinggu. Thanks Eric Paré for generously sharing all the light painting tips!

. في شمال غرب مدينة العلا تقف مدائن صالح شاهدة على حضارة عريقة نشأت منذ أربعة الاف عام قبل الميلاد، حيث تقص علينا أحجارها ومبانيها قصصا عن أقوام وأحداث وقعت منذ قديم الأزل. فعلى بعد اثنين وعشرين كيلو مترًا غرب مدينة «العلا» السعودية تنطق مدائن صالح بتاريخ حضارة الأنباط وقوم ثمود الذين عاشوا فيها مخلفين آثارا وعمارة لا مثيل لها على وجه الأرض ما جعل اليونسكو يضمها إلى مناطق التراث العالمي في عام 2008. 🔺🔺🔺🔺🔺🔺🔺🔺🔺🔺🔺 In the northwest of the city of Ula, Madain Saleh stands as a witness to an ancient civilization dating back to 4000 BC, where stones and buildings tell us stories of people and events that have occurred since ancient times. Twenty-two kilometers west of the city of Al-Ula, Saudi Arabia, Mada'in Saleh speaks of the history of the Nabatean civilization and the Thamud people who lived there, leaving monuments unmatched on the face of the earth which is why #UNESCO made it a World Heritage Site in 2008. . . . #AlUla #DiscoverAlUla #travel #instatravel #travelphotography #travelgram #seetheworld #visitSaudiArabia #WorldHeritage #bucketlist #ليش_لا #العلا #اكتشف_العلا #شتاء_طنطورة #saudi #dreamaat #مدائن_صالح #مدائن #madaensaleh #worldheritagesite #unescoworldheritage

What do you do when you want to build something spectacular in the middle of the desert, but don’t want to take away or distract from the natural beauty of the place? You build a mirror, a gigantic one! Ladies and gentlemen this insane building is a concert hall. When you sit inside you can see the surrounding desert while listening to world class performers and walk into live paintings. I’m not kidding!

A simple shot, yet one of my favorites from the trip!! . The entire Al'ulá excursion just blew my mind! Luckily, I came out of the trip with a TON of photos I am just in love with!! We experienced local dances and ceremonies, two large feasts, a visit to a traditional camp with camels, horses and goats, exploring the UNESCO site — Madain Saleh — and we finished the day with a 4x4 drive through a sandy canyon to a bonfire to watch the evening sun go down. A full day of adventure in the desert!!! #discoverAlUla #Alula . . . #saudiarabia #saudia #addiriyaheprix  #world_bestnature #unescoworldheritage #wherewillwegonext #postcardsfromtheworld #passportready #aroundtheworld #instavacation #instatravelling  #traveltheworld #traveldiaries #camel #middleeast #andshesdopetoo #dametraveler #placestovisit #bucketlist #beautyiseverywhere #beautifuldestinations #travelstoke #placestogo #lonelyplanet #passionpassport #travelawesome #saudi
