About :

Location of the first cable car in Asir, is named after an old village located on a steep 400 metre cliff made famous by the people of Al Habala. The inhabitants lived in stone dwelling clinging to the cliff-face for the security and safety found in the rock walls. So sheer was the cliffside that the villagers -- men and women -- lowered themselves down into ravine on ropes. These rugged and fearless people came to be known as the Rope People of Al Habala
