Ushaiger (or Ushaiqer) is a small heritage village located 200km northwest of Riyadh in the Najd region of Saudi Arabia.
The entire heritage area is inside a thick wall with massive towers and wide doors made of tamarisk wood. Only a few houses in Ushaiger are restored. Most are in a poor preservation status and have broken roofs. All houses are built with dried mud and wood.
Ushaiger lies in an oasis area, where bedouins first settled 1500 years ago. Over time it became a stopping point for pilgrims on their way to Mecca.
How to get to Ushaiger
Ushaiger can easily be reached by car. It's 2 1/2 hours northwest of Riyadh and can be visited on a daytrip.
The closest hotels probably are those in Shaqra (bookable with the international hotel booking portals). In Ushaiger itself there is no accomodation.
