About the Hike:

Possibly our favorite and most scenic hike in the UAE; however, this one does require a fair amount of bouldering skills.

We start off at 9 AM from the location found below. After our headcount and safety briefing, we will set off into a narrow yet gorgeous wadi that winds through Dibba’s mountains. The hike features a very gradual elevation gain throughout the entire trail, our total gain will be around 380 meters.

After a little while of hiking, the terrain will completely transform into smooth, colored rocks and that is when things get interesting. Bouldering skills are required and you’ll need to use your hands to climb up rocks at multiple points so this hike is not recommended for beginners. If you have never hiked before, we strongly recommend that you sit this one out and join our next hike in March. Hiking shoes are also strongly recommended for this hike. Please do contact me for shoe recommendations and discount promo codes.

The total duration of the hike will depend on the group’s pace; however, based on previous experience it will take us around 4 to 5 hours.

Adventure 2.7 Starting 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.
