The Golden Heights

An adventure at
high altitudes

A trip to the summit of the AMAALA landscape reveals dramatic rocky peaks and sweeping views, danced upon by a breathtaking play of light and shadow. This vast, unexplored terrain offers a natural playground for the adventurous. We invited Nelly Attar, entrepreneur, trainer, and dancer to be one of the first to discover the riches of the region. This is her journey.
