near Dārah, Raʼs al Khaymah (United Arab Emirates)

A challenging route that involves following the Wadi, going up steep gorge leading to a summit with panoramic views, descent to another wadi (scree slope) and rejoining the starting point. Some of the narrow winding sections of the gorge have hidden surprises.
Finish off the day with a dip in chilled waters of the Rock pool at the start of the trail.

    Well laid out path, impossible to lose the trail. I would only suggest going in reverse, as you would end up at the pools which would be a nice way to end the trail. I would call it easy to moderate. Hiking shoes - a must as scree can be very challenging in regular footwear.

    Glad you enjoyed it... we did take a well deserved dip after the hike 😊

    Hello.
    Wanted to ask if this place is accessible with sedan ?

  • zaheer Nov 25, 2020

    It would depend on the condition of the track, when I went it was doable without 4x4.. that was 2 years ago 😊

    Has anyone tried this with their dog? She’s a desert mix so more capable than most but just want to check before we bring her along
