Wadi Naqab & Sheri Village

Ras Al Khaimah

Hiking

Duration: 6-7 hours
Distance: 7 Km
Ascent: 800 M
Level: Moderate +

One of the most beautiful moderately challenging day hikes you can do in the UAE. The route will bring you all the way up to the remote Sheri Village perched on the top of the mountain at 800 meters in height (with amazing photo opportunities).


The surroundings are nothing less than surreal. The trail features a narrow gorge surrounded by the peaks of intensely orange-colored cliffs, impressive greyish rock formations, and dramatic views at the top of the mountain. Many turns and corners on this wadi Naqab trail would suit an adventure movie set up.


It features beautiful orange color Wadi Naqab canyon, bat cave, spectacular Hajar mountain range views, functional Sheri Village settlement at the summit. The hike involves lots of bouldering, some scrambling, walking around the mountain face, steep incline, and decline following manmade donkey path.


Sheri village route involves a good amount of bouldering over medium-sized rocks, some easy gravel road walk, man-made mountain steps and donkey path (sandy path with some loose rocks around), a little bit of scrambling may be required, and a short section of balcony walk.
