( Al-Qarah Mountain (Saudi Arabia) )

Al-Qarah Mountain or Jabal Al-Qārah (Arabic: جَبَل ٱلْقَارَة), also known as "Al-Shabaab Mountain", is a mesa of 75 metres (246 feet) in Al-Ahsa, in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia. This mountain counts as one of the most important natural sights in Al-Ahsa, and was registered in the UNESCO world heritage center's list in 2018, after the inclusion of Al-Ahsa Oasis. It is located 15 kilometres (9.3 miles) to the northeast of Al-Hofuf. Some of its caves, such as "Al-Nashab", have moderately steady temperatures throughout the year.

The mountain was inhabited by the tribe of Bani Muhareb from Abdul-Qais till the third century in the Hijri calendar. Because of the different terrain of each cave, the caves used by the residents in the past and until now like Al-Eid Cave for weddings, Al-Nashab cave for tourism, and Um Al-Jamajem cave which recently used for hiking trips since the end of 2019.
