About the Hike:
There is something very special about this hike, besides it being Grasp The Adventure’s 1 year birthday, it is also unique because it involves a little bit of swimming in Wadi Shawkah.
This hike is not technical and is suitable for beginner hikers who are looking to jumpstart their adventurous souls. We will be passing through some scree so hiking shoes are recommended. Please contact us for hiking shoes recommendations.
We will start off by following the wadi up a gorge leading to a low peak with beautiful, panoramic views. After coming down a scree slope on the other side, we will loop back through the wadi where multiple little pools will await us. If you are uncomfortable in water, there are alternative trails that can be taken to avoid the deeper pools. However, we strongly urge you to Grasp the Canyoning with us as we dive into the cold, fresh water pools.
The total duration of the hike will depend on the group’s pace; however, based on previous experience it will take us around 4-5 hours.
4 Wheel Drives are not needed to get to the meeting point, location is accessible to absolutely any car. Please be at the following location at 8 AM sharp to avoid any delays:
We wanna help you get there!
If you don’t have a way to get to the meeting point, let us know. We encourage car pools and will help sort them out. If you have a car and are willing to take some people onboard with you then you my friend, are a boss! 🙂
Car pooling will be discussed in the group once you register for the hike.
Food, Water & Snacks:
You should pack at least 3 liters of water for the hike, I cannot stress on this point enough. As for food, you’ll need some snacks to give you an energy boost during the climbs and a light lunch to have at the beach. Most importantly though… pack enough water!
Optional BBQ After the Hike:
I know this is the real reason you’re all joining the hike (if this is your first time joining us, you’ll know what I’m talking enough soon enough). After the hike is over, some people drive back to Dubai or Abu Dhabi but the majority of us choose to stay for a BBQ and bon fire (camping too depending on the weather and temperature). If you want to stay for the bbq, all you need to bring is your chair and a grill (can use others’ if you don’t have one) and whatever meat or veggies you’ll be cooking (you can keep them in my cooler during the hike)… OR, I also offer awesome, marinated (the GTA secret marinade), Australian Skirt Steak from La Carne, Abu Dhabi; it’ll be marinated the night before and kept in the cool box ready to grill after the hike. This is an all time favorite so contact me if you want to know more about how you can order some for yourself 😉
