near Tawian, Al Fujayrah (United Arab Emirates)
If you don't fancy the full Wadi Khabb circuit this is a shorter but equally interesting alternative hike. Accessible by 2wd, park by the tree just to the left of the track at the start of the wadi. Follow the track until you reach a gravel based area and take the wadi to your left (waypoint indicated). There is a goat trail to the side of the wadi that makes the first part easy going but as the wadi starts to steepen some boulder hopping and a little scrambling will be required. For the geologists there are some interesting rocks along the way. Eventually you will reach the ridge line - don't forget to look back along your route periodically for some great views. After the ridge line it is just a short walk down to a farm and the main Jebel Yibir approach road. Here you have a choice, either follow the road (left) back towards Al Tawain and your car or if feeling adventurous (and fit!), cross the road and scramble down to the wadi running parallel to the road and follow it down back towards Al Tawain. Usual recommendations for adequate water, energy snacks and sun protection.
