Many of you probably heard or have been to popular Hatta Dam but how many fo you knew about this awesome trail next to the Dam? In June we took this short easy trail and got totally blown away by the scenery. Check my blog post www.theroadreel.com/hatta-secret-canyon-hike-uae/ for what to expect.
We hiked from 4pm, therefore, temperature was just perfect. You can extend this hike further but we stopped for photography and it got late to cobtinue-next time will aim for a longer trail. This time we only did 5km round trip but that was perfect for the hot summer weather.
The only tough part is a short hike up the rocky hill. From there you will be surprised with the cracked terrain in the valley. It lools like a maze with the dry deep river bed snaking around the valley.
For those who are looking for a reasonable summer hike-this is perfect option.

Up the hill

This is the only tough part of this hike which is still easy to accomplish. Hike up 100 meters, watch for loose rocks, take care when climbing down on your way back, especially in the dark.
