The Hajar Mountains are the perfect place for a picnic or hike, rewarding the visitor with dramatic canyons and spellbinding views around every corner. For a real challenge, take a trek up to the summit of UAE’s tallest peak, Jebel Jais
, which stands 1,934 metres tall and stays 10 degrees cooler than sea level.
Biking and camping are just as fun when it comes to mountain adventures. As the Arabian sun fades into the horizon, prepare to be wowed by Ras Al Khaimah’s sparkling night sky. Far from the light pollution of the city, the unusually dark skies offer a jaw-dropping stargazing experience that will linger long in the memory.
