About the Event

This activity is also for people new to rock climbing but with already quite some experience in outdoor, hiking and familiar with altitude and exposure! We will be strapping on the harness, the helmet and come down from cliffs of rock with rope and repelling equipment.

This trip has  limited participants  to ensure each person has adequate supervision by the guides and trainers!

For more info and pictures of this location, visit our page here: Thunder Canyon (


The timing is weather and conditions dependent. Takes about 4-5 hours to complete the canyon. But difficult to predict exact ending time as it depends on the group pace. 

Details will be shared before the event starts.


  • Certified hiking guide leading the way, showing and explaining the natural features and history of the area.
  • All the technical climbing gear necessary for the activity.
  • Max Participants: 8


We start the hike from the Jebel Jais road through some trails and scrambling, down to the start point of the canyon (which is essentially a dry river bed) where we will abseil, hike scramble and pass large boulders.

The adventure will take 5-7 hours (depending on the group speed), with an elevation gain of 4-600m circa. 

The lead guide will set up the ropes and prepare and descent gear to the participants (no need previous experience with this). The participant will then have to descent steep walls until the base of the wall, under the supervision of the guide to then continue the hike.
