Located on the perimeter of the high mountain mass in the north, reaching Jebel Naja is a tough walk. First you have to get up to the high mountain ranges, then the route continues from an area near the water pools of Kharazet el Shaq. As you approach Jebel Naja you are already high up, and the top of the mountain looks like a small hill from this side, but on the other side you feel the depth as you look down on the lowlands and the distant Tih Plateau.
