Travelling through, for me, an amazing landscape, you eventually reach this dam with an amazing view of the wadi it feeds below and the artificial lake behind it. The mountain backdrop is breathtaking.

The place is one among the best for a Dam lover. A good place for some quick photographs too. Better to visit during the afternoons once the temperature drops.
