About the Hike:
Possibly our favorite and most scenic hike in the UAE! This hike is not technical and is suitable for beginner hikers who are looking to jumpstart their adventurous souls. There will be a fair amount of bouldering though so hiking shoes are recommended for maximum safety and comfort. Please contact us for hiking shoes recommendations.
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 you'll understand why this trail was named Spectrum Mountains.
4 Wheel Drives are NOT needed to get to the meeting point; however they are required to get to the trail starting point. If you do not have a 4 wheel drive, we will carpool from the meeting point to the trail start while adhering to all Covid-19 Regulations. If you do not have a way to get to the meeting point either, please contact us and we are happy to help arrange a carpool for you.
