This is the trip you have been waiting for. Known to be one of the toughest hikes in UAE due to its steep elevation. Yet surrounded by like-minded adventurers and overwhelmed the breathtaking nature and view of the rocky mountains. On this trip, you will learn to and navigate your way through the mountain carrying your sleeping bag, food, water, and tent in your backpack. It's a test of endurance and that will make all the difference. This trip is not to be taken lightly as it is very physically demanding. However, the route itself is not technical as you follow a trail and you have resting stops as you ascend. The reward is the camp spot with majestic views overlooking RAK city from around 1000m elevation. The plan is to start early afternoon and reach the campsite just after sunset after a long 5 hours of steep climbing (depends on group pace). This way you will get to experience hiking at night for a short distance using a headlight, just like you would be on summit night when climbing high altitude mountains.
