DO NOT TRY ANY MOUNTAIN HIKES IF YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE MOUNTAIN TERRAINS, DANGERS FROM WILDLIFE, FIRST AID, WATER AND SNACKS, YOUR OWN FITNESS, REMOTE ACTIVITY PREPARATIONS, COMMUNICATION TOOLS, MOUNTAIN GEOGRAPHY, TOPOGRAPHY, RISK FACTORS, HSE REQUIREMENTS, HIKING ALONE, NOT HAVING A GROUP WITH SIMILAR FITNESS.

STUDY ALL ABOVE MATTERS WELL BEFORE FOLLOWING ANY TRAILS THAT YOU FIND ONLINE.
PLEASE DO NOT OVER ESTIMATE YOURSELF.

BETTER BE SAFE THAN PUT YOURSELF / GROUP IN DANGER AND REGRET LATER.
2020 has Seen a lot of unwanted Hiking Incidents that could have been avoided with better preparation.
Wish you All the best.

We hiked the Wadi Al Tayfi short trail to cover the Spectrum Rocks that are so rich in different colours, as if they are layers of Multi colour Cakes.This wadi comes under Ghub Village of Fujairah.
There is Bouldering involved in the trail.
We reached early morning so that we could click nice pictures before the Sunlight hits the rocks. The pictures are best in Ambient Light and not with bright sunrays on them.
Take care of the Vipers as there are many living there.
There are different types of coloured Rock Layer formations, in addition to multi coloured boulders and Coloured walls of the Wadi.
This Place is to be visited to believe it. I have never seen such Spectacle anywhere else.

    Hi Patrick! This looks like a great trail, can you access this without a permit at the moment?

    Hi Laura,
    Nice to hear from you.
    It's your luck actually.
    I'm not sure if there is Permit system.
    Sometimes hikers are turned back and Sometimes not.
    Best time to go on this Trail is weekdays and start early morning.

    The Rock formations that resemble Bacon are amazing.

    Hi Fatima,
    You can park somewhere here, its a graded road but a Sedan will go.

    Its a narrow road and used by local residents, so park with discretion and make sure that the road is not blocked.
    Start as early as possible.
    The direct effect of Sunlight on the rocks will make the Bacon Rocks less attractive. Ambient light is much better.
    Enjoy the Hike and be safe.
