- Thowr Mountain: Known as "Cave of Thawr," named after the mountain in which it is located, Mount Thawr Akhdhal. It is said to be named after a man named Thawr ibn Abd Manat. The Cave of Thawr is situated 12 kilometers south of Makkah, and due to its considerable distance from Makkah, the number of pilgrims visiting it is fewer compared to the visitors of the Cave of Hira in Mount Nur, where the first revelation was received by the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Climbing Mount Thawr provides travellers with the opportunity to enjoy panoramic natural landscapes and witness the cave where Allah protected His Messenger and his companion from their enemies.
- Mount Arafat: On the ninth day of the Islamic month of Dhu al-Hijjah, pilgrims from all corners of the world gather at the foothills of Mount Arafat in Makkah. Standing on the plains of Arafat, pilgrims raise their hands in supplication to Allah. Mount Arafat is surrounded by a range of mountains and is bordered by the valley of Arna. It is located on the road between Makkah and Taif, approximately 22 kilometers east of Makkah, 10 kilometers from the Mina pilgrimage site, and 6 kilometers from Muzdalifah.
