The reservoir of King Fahad Dam in
I was quite surprised to learn
that the year I visited the dam did not get any
rain, even then, the dam has a storage of 25% water.
King Fahad Dam stores water that flows down from the
mountains of Asir region.
A very fertile land, Bishah,
nowadays is getting short of ground water. As you
drive through the wadis, you witness the
plight of date farms that are partially wilted
though there are areas in Bishah that has amazingly
large date farms.
The terrain of Bishah is
rocky, though, broad valleys like Wadi Tarj snakes
through the region. A number of mountains like mount
al Qunnah, mount Makharim, mount Ad Dhurayyat, mount
Ad Dahlah...etc are surrounding the city.
