The Crater, which is about 380 meters deep, attracts geologists to explore its secrets and observe its diverse and exotic rock formations. Traditional legends are known and spread among residents of nearby villages around the Crater formation. A trip to shiny dormant volcanoes If you are an adventurer and a hiking lover, and want to reward yourself by reaching a place that amazes you by its nature after the long travel journey, pack your luggage, and prepare to go to the deepest and widest dormant volcanic crater in Saudi Arabia ,Wahba Crater , which is about 250 km away from Taif. You will be astonished by the gleaming salt dome under the sun at the bottom of the circular Crater, where a water lake evaporates in the summer and turns into a sabkha while wild plants grow on its edges in the rainy season. Unfinished love story A legend of an unfinished love that formed Wahba Crater: In a dark night, a lightning bolt illuminated Qitn Mountain revealing its beauty making Tamya Mountain fall in love with it, promising to move toward its lover; however, Chliman Mountain’s jealousy intercepted such love shooting an arrow to Tamya Mountain demolishing the mountain to be a hole.
