Showka Loop Trek

Inquire Booking
From AED 430.50

Our Showka Loop is a 7.5km hike starting at the Showka Dam Car Park that can be shortened or lengthened depending on the group.
The hike sees us walking along, through and over the Hajar Mountains with plenty of shaded stops available. Although the loop itself does not climb the highest peak, this is an option if the group are feeling up to it, this can be done at the beginning or the end of the trek, however it should be noted that on some days, the summit can be quite busy, sometimes with a queue to the top.
This is a moderately taxing trek along a single-track pathway, which can be steep/loose in places. Our trained guides will be on hand throughout to help you along the route, point out sites of interest and to educate on the local flora, fauna and local area. Our guides all hold a minimum of Level 3 Outdoor First aid Certificate, and will have full communication with our base camp should any additional assistance be required.
The minimum age for this adventure is 8, but all participants should be able to hike confidently over rough and sometimes steep terrain unaided for at least 4 hours.
