A great beginner hike! The hike is 3 hours over varied terrain, up to a bouldery wadi, down a plateau where you will see ancient settlements (the remnants of them) and then your challenge: up to reach the pass over a ridge. It's a steep incline, but the rocks are solid and non-scree like, making you feel confident as you make your way up, then over the ridge and back down the gentle descent. Kids are also welcome to participate as they will enjoy this hike as well, especially if we are going slowly. Please keep in mind that anyone that this is classified as a beginner hike for people that are participating in fitness activities on a regular basis. However, provided that you run, swim, bike, or do fitness classes regularly, you will enjoy this great beginner hike, suitable for all ages, for a morning getaway.
This hike is just off the Sharjah/Kalba Highway, 1.5 hours from Dubai. Easy to find, no need for an off-road car either.
Starting in the afternoon means we miss the high noon heat and get the late afternoon breezes that is common in the mountains.
The hike will take you on a flat section through the wadi, and over the ridge for an amazing view of the Hajjar mountains. Though it's still hot in the afternoons, this is a short hike not more than 4 hours. However, you still will need to take 3 liters of water with you! Hiking shoes strongly recommended.
