Wadi Shah Full Loop


Wadi Shah is a popular albeit strenuous hike that presents unique hiking challenges. Therefore, before we’ll take anyone on the Wadi Shah full loop, you must have hiked with us before or hiked the half loop.

The initial ascent of this hike requires scrambling and climbing over sizable boulders as we move up a wadi, followed by a series of switch backs on steep scree slopes that take us up on to the ridge. We’ll have a short period of time along the ridge to enjoy the view before heading down a very narrow, exposed ledge to another wadi that will take us back to the trail head. Limit: 12 people
