  Asir - LoveToKnow 1911   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
ASIR, a district in western Arabia, lying between 17° 30' and 21 0 N., and 40° 30' and 45° E.; bounded N. by Hejaz, E. by Nejd, S. by Yemen and W. by the Red Sea.
Since the reconquest of Yemen by the Turks, they have made repeated attempts to subjugate Asir, but beyond occupying Kanfuda, and holding one or two isolated points in the interior, of which Ibha and Manadir are the principal, they have effected nothing.
The chief sources of information regarding Asir are the notes made by J. Burckhardt at Taif in 1814 and those of the French officers with the Egyptian expeditions into the country from 1814 to 1837.

 'Asir - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Though data is exceedingly sparse and unreliable, the average annual rainfall in the highlands probably ranges from 300 to 500 millimetres (12 to 20 inches) falling in two rainy seasons, the chief one being in March and April with some rain in the summer.
'Asir, along with the Najran and Jizan provinces, was an independent kingdom until Saudi Arabia annexed it in 1934.
Also, 'Asir has been much less affected by the oil boom than has the rest of Saudi Arabia, and the modern urban development of cities like Riyadh is largely absent except to some extent in Abha, which serves as a resort town for wealthy Saudis during the extremely hot summers.

 [No title]
The Asir, as the south-western corner of the Kingdom is known, is an area where there are mountains, rainy weather, green landscapes and life without air-conditioning.
Because of its location, Asir has always had close ties with Yemen and this is reflected not only in the customs of the people but also in their architecture.
The Asir National Park is an enormous tract of land stretching from the Red Sea to the desert east of the mountains.

 Saudi Aramco World : Across The Mountains To 'Asir   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
No careful measurements have ever been taken of the amount of rain that falls on 'Asir, but because agriculture there requires little or no irrigation it is assumed that most parts of the highlands get at least 12 inches a year.
Houses in Jaizan, the region's principal port on the Red Sea, are made of rush-reed thatch and cordage and are conical in shape, resembling large beehives, the better for the rain to wash over them.
The camel trails that famed Arab traveler ibn Battuta followed during his visit to 'Asir in 1330 have long since been replaced by modern roads connecting Abha and Jaizan and all of the province with the port city of Jiddah, 150 miles to the north.

 Follow the Mon(k)ey - November 4, 2004 - The New York Sun
The only difference seems to be that the steep and ragged mountains of the Sarawat in 'Asir are crystalline while the highlands of Yemen are volcanic in geological origin.
Today, that southwestern part of Saudi Arabia is administratively broken up into the provinces of 'Asir (five of the hijackers), Al-Baha (four of the hijackers), Jizan (part of the thin coastal plain called the Tehama that stretches along 600 miles of the Red Sea coast and culturally belongs to Africa), and Najran.
'Asir, on the other hand is lush and green, with juniper and wild olive forests, and plenty of monsoon-like rainfall.

 Telegraph | News | The six sons of Asir
The boy Mr Al-Nami remembers as a loving eldest son was one of 15 Saudis among the 19 men identified as the September 11 hijackers, responsible for killing more than 3,000 people.
At least six of the hijackers are from the southwest provinces of Asir and Baha, a statistic that has brought this remote corner of the Saudi kingdom under the scrutiny of investigators.
The last region to be conquered by the ruling al-Saud family, Asir did not come under central control until the 1930s and remains a highly conservative and tribal society, suspicious of the government and closer in character to neighbouring Yemen, the birthplace of bin Laden's father.

Even now Saudis and expatriates are flocking to the cool highlands to escape the city heat, and Saudia, the national airline, is running four flights a day from Riyadh to Abha, and four from Jiddah.
Without protection, the beauty of Asir could easily be spoiled, particularly when the park is officially open and visitors begin to arrive in large numbers.

 MALARIA IN CHILDREN - EXPERIENCE FROM ASIR REGION, SAUDI ARABIA :14(5)
In Asir Central Hospital, Abha, which is a tertiary health institution for Asir region, malaria has occasionally been diagnosed in children referred with fever of unknown origin or those with unexplained splenomegaly.
Although Asir Central Hospital is a tertiary institution, the children's emergency room is open 24 hours and patients are seen without referral.
It contributes to childhood morbidity; the recurrent infection in children in the endemic area may result in anemia, malnutrition and subsequent growth retardation.9,17 There is need, therefore, for intensified curative as well as preventive measures integrated within the existing primary health care system for the control of malaria in this endemic area of the region.

As was probable already in antiquity, in the 10th century the wadi Baish, abounding in water, formed the north boundary of the densely populated and terraced mountainous region of Khaulan (and until 1934 it was the border between the kingdom of Yemen and Saudi Arabia).
The headwaters of Wadi Bishah (which is dry most of the year) begin near Abha in the Asir mountains of Saudi Arabia.
To the south of Wadi Baysh lies the mountainous region of Khawan (Khaulan) believed by some scholars to be Havilah (the Targum's Chavilah), the Baysh being the Pishon river of Edenic fame.
