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 hike. This will not be an easy hike if you are not fit and do not participate in fitness activities at least 3 times per week. However, if you already are fit, and you have never hiked before, you will enjoy this 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+. The Saturday option will be a wadi close by that is only known to the locals. This will be an easy walk through banana plantations and a wadi, with some swimming and cliff jumping options.
We will stay in a beautiful resort called The Wadi Sharm Resort. Transportation is provided along with hotel and meals.
