Dumat Al Jandal Lake

Extending over an area of 1 million square meters and a depth of 15 meters, the blue lake has more than 8 million cubic meters of water. Thirty-three years ago, the lake’s waters overflowed into an area called al-Sabkha, damaging the farmers’ cultivations. But giant pumps have worked to better distribute the lake’s waters and enhance the irrigation network. Located in the middle of the desert, the lake has become a place for trekking, jet skiing, as well as other water sports. Tourism officials are now counting on this lake to attract people to the Jawf region.
