A challenging hike with incredible scenery
Geological wonders as you walk along a balcony trail with cliff edge
Lunch stop at a dry waterfall (sometimes has water depending on the time of year)
One of the best hiking trails in UAE
Unlike the Stairway to Heaven hike on the left side of this hike, the right side is safer and offers the same incredible views.
The right side includes a developed path with stairs managed by the RAK government and is what we will be hiking. The trail goes up 670m to a dry waterfall. Mobile reception is limited throughout.
Not suitable for beginners, nor people with a fear of heights. There is a 20-30m balcony walk with a large drop on one side (the walkway is 2m wide and flat).
While safe, this trek is not suitable for you if you are afraid of heights. Due to the risk of flash floods, if it rains, we will be doing an alternate trek.
Wadi Ghalilah at 6.45am for a prompt 7:00am start (no 4x4 required)
Expect to be back:
Getting out of city life, enjoying the beautiful weather, staying physically active and meeting great people, I can't recommend joining Adventure Quest enough, there's really no better way to experience nature in the Middle East.Keith
