Buraimi: Jabal Qatar, Wadi Madbah (Dec 7-9)
Take the family on this lovely trek to a resort full of swimming and hiking
This is our favorite day hike because of its proximity to Abu Dhabi and Dubai, just over the border in Al Ain, 2 short hours away. This is a beautiful varied terrain hike. The ascent is around 3 hours, and the descent is another 2 hours, though the way down is tricky. If you attempt to push through, you will have the option to turn around earlier and make this a 4-hour hike, leaving off the more difficult sections. Early rise 5 hours continuous hiking. This hike is family friendly for active kids 9+.
We will stay in a lovely new resort close the start of the trek. Friday afternoon we will relax in the hotel (you will need recovery time) Saturday, we will head to a nearby – unknown and amazing wadi for swimming and hiking. It’s very flat and very accessible.
