From AED 525
A challenge for those who have already completed our linear Hidden Oasis route, this extended loop takes you far away from the road, and far into the wadi where you have to be completely self-reliant.
Once you have passed the Hidden Oasis, the gradient of the hike gets steeper and steeper before summiting a small peak in the middle of Jebel Jais mountain range. This gradient is no easy task, and will put your stamina and will-power to the test.
After the peak (where you have amazing views) you pass a small remote farm, and if you’re lucky, you may be invited in to share some tea. This then leads you to a steep downhill section, traversing the top of a scree slope. Steady footing and patience are key here. Passing a small pond and a tropical paradise on the way downhill, you find the land becoming steadily flatter as you reach the main wadi bed.
A challenging but rewarding hike, with nature at the Hidden Oasis, and then spectacular views in remote locations. You choose to put yourself and your skills to the test, don't expect an easy ride!
