Jabal Qiwi (Oct 27)
This is a spectacular hike to the highest point in UAE with your trekking being rewarded with a view of the Arabian Sea from the top.
Jabal Qiwi is the highest point in the UAE, located in Dibba. We will have to spend the night in the Golden Tulip the night before in order to secure our ‘border pass’ to the area of Omani Dibba, buts it is worth is as this area is spectacular, with views of the sea from the top of the mountain. The trail is a goal/donkey trail, with a few steep ascents, lots of small scree and loose rocks with a bit of bouldering and clambering through a rocky cave at to reach the top. This trek is around 6 hours and will start at 7 am and finish by 1pm. A great experience as long as you have good fitness, balance, and proper hiking shoes. We will reach the Dibba area on Thursday with transport being arranged by carpools. Breakfast and lunch are both included in your fees. As an added bonus, if you join Qiwi, you will be added to the Wadi Bih hike the next morning free of charge. Its like a 2 for 1 hike!
Lunch is provided.
