Wadi Shah (Half) or Full Loop Mountain Extended: Training Challenge (C)

  • Ras Al Khaima UAE (map)

If you are fit and ready for a challenge but not sure about the full 6 hour trek, you can go halfway up and turn around (4 hours). If you think you're ready but our trek leaders feel differenty, you will be turned around at the terraces.

If you're ready now its time to do the FULL LOOP, for Advanced /Fit trekkers only and it goes without saying you MUST HAVE HIKING BOOTS and be able to carry 5 liters of water and a lunch.

We prefer to hike starting in the afternoon and simply being prepared for the sun setting and coming down in the dark. The late afternoon offers shade and cooler temps that we will just never get when we go in the morning and hottest hours of the day.

This makes an enjoyable and relaxed morning as well.
Leave Abu Dhabi at 10 am, Dubai at 11 am, reach the hiking trail at 1:00 and plan to start hiking at 1:30. Finishing by either 4 pm (halfway) or 7 pm for the Challenge group

HIKE DIFFICULTY:

The full loop is COMMITTING, exposed, steep, with lots of scree, ledges, and slippery wadis. Its a challenge but its also incredibly scenic, dramatic and cool.
