We eagerly planned Abha visit but with lack of present receivers we were stuck with Plan to Al Sauda Cable station in off season with no notice board. Lastly we came to know they are running in off season only Fridays and Saturdays. So people plan your visit accordingly .

Secondly the Abha Al Jadidah Cable Car Station is scheduled to run Wed to Sat so missed this too.
Cable Car at Al Habala is currently running only Thu, Fri and Sat.

So do keep a note of these
apart from this weather here is beautiful

Al sooda and green mountain was closed. But habala park was open and it was a nice experience. Since it was off season, it was not crowded and we could take really good photos.

Don't go. I was yesterday there, wait 15 minutes, but nobody was coming.
They have a serious padlock and a chain on the gate. Seems that the gate wasn't use for some time.
Stat home or try to find something else to do.

It's Al Souda, Soodah, Soda...regardless of the spelling, it's the cable car excursion that you just have to do if you visit Assir province! It's about 20 minutes from Abha city area, and may be hard to catch an uber out there, but well worth it. There are a few cable car locations in the area, so make sure you have the right one. This is the best (disclaimer: it was the only one I tried). It's 80 SAR per adult, and runs 1pm-5 or 6pm. The ride is about 20min each way in the cable car. The views are spectacular (as long as you're not scared of heights). Being suspended over the gorges and the rocks and coming over the mountain was beautiful and serene. The cars are enough to fit 6-8 adults, but if you want to be able to move around to get 360 views, 2-4 people is best. At the bottom, there wasn't much to do though. Just a snack stand, some picnic tables, and more views of the valley town below and the mountain you just descended from. It was a Friday early afternoon, so nothing was open down below. We rode back up, and it was a nice little trip on my last day in Abha. Our cab was waiting, so we made it down the mountain, took some pictures, and back up in one hour flat. If more was open, we would have ventured into town which would have taken more time.
