About the Hike:

There is something very special about this hike, we are collaborating with Ginger Dance & Arts Studio for a very unique experience on the mountains.

We start off at 9 AM hiking in a small canyon between two mountains. 300 meters into the trail, we will begin ascending one of the ridges with a total elevation gain of 450 meters. At the top, the ridge opens up into a large, flat mountain with spectacular, panoramic views of the Maleha desert and nearby peaks. With a beautiful backdrop behind us, some of the very talented dance instructors from Ginger Dance & Arts Studio will be offering a free, 1 hour class in Latin and Afro dancing for those interested to join. After the class, we will rest and snack before heading back down the ridge to the starting point and our cars.

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.

The total duration of the hike will depend on the group’s pace; however, based on previous experience it will take us around 5 hours.

Transportation:

4 Wheel Drives are not needed to get to the meeting point, location is accessible to absolutely any car. The exit off the highway is very tight and will come up suddenly so slow down when you’re near the waypoint and be ready to take the sharp turn off the highway. Please be at the following location at 9 AM sharp to avoid any delays:

Maleha Hike Meeting Point

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:

After the hike is over, some people head off but the majority choose to stay for a BBQ and bon fire. If you wish 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 food you’ll be cooking for dinner (you can keep them in the Grasp The Adventure cooler during the hike)… OR, you can order one of the following from us:

  1. 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 😉
  2. Australian Wagyu burgers from La Carne, Abu Dhabi. On the side, you’ll have lettuce, onions, potato buns, aged cheddar cheese, ketchup and chipotle mayonnaise so you can make your perfect burger sandwich

Contact me to find out more about how you can order these.
