Afternoon: Ancient Traders Donkey Trail (Easy, 4 hours)


A full circle around the old 'smuggler's route which is actually still used by donkeys, goats and humans as they make their way up to the top of Jabal Jais. Its a very spectacular mountain and the hike will be suitable for beginners though the better your fitness the more you will enjoy.

FITNESS REQUIRED: Working out regularly will mean you will enjoy it more.

Our trek leaders are all:

• trained in remote, wilderness first aid specific for this region.

• communicate with each other using walkie talkies and SAT phones. We do not depend on local networks.

• Know the trail and have done it at least twice with the coordinates in their GPS.

Our trek leaders also will make you feel comfortable and safe. You will learn about how to be safe in these mountains.



You need the right gear to hike in these mountains. If you sign up in advance, we can get you the right gear and the right size. Otherwise, plan to have proper hiking boots and a backpack, with 4 liters of water and some snacks.


You will make your payment and coordinate once you are added to a whats app group. you will complete a waiver and a fitness form and receive a Get Ready email with detailed information.

We will meet at 9 am at the trailhead. There is no need for an offroad car as will drop right over the tarmac road and start on the trail.
