Wadi Kof is in the foothills of Jabal Jais, just 1.5 hours from Dubai, making it a great option for a sunrise and sunset hike. No off-road car required, but you will need hiking boots with a good grip and ankle support. Trainers, especially for beginners, are an invitation for a twisted ankle, a slip, and a very uncomfortable walk in this terrain. This route is some flat sections, bouldering sections, and a few climbs up a rocky ridge trail. It is perfectly doable for beginners as long as you are willing to invest in a pair of HIKING SHOES. No trainers. No negotiation. We will offer this trek twice on Friday, for Sunrise and Sunset. Notes about the route: In the morning, you will be shaded for the first hour. This is a dog friendly trek route. SUNRISE GROUP: Meeting time is 600 am at the Turn off. 1.5 hours from Dubai direct on the 611.

FALCON’S RIDGE Advanced Beginner Trek: And Summer Hiking Safety Certificate Get the experience of climbing a mountain - switchbacks, ledges, and a 260-meter accent. Walk along the ridge of two foothills while enjoying an unobstructed view of the Showka Mountain Range Covid19 and summer protocols; We usually do NOT offer hiking in the summer, but under the circumstances, we are all itching to get outside and the fact is its safer to be in the mountains than in the city. So we have decided to offer a Safe Hiking Skills Morning in order to teach you what you need to know to stay safe in these conditions. We are also offering a free Summer Hiking Safely Certificate to those that pass the quiz after the hike. For your SHS Certificate: 2 days Before you go: you will be sent the Summer Safety Skills Checklist and will be expected to read all of the information and do a little research. While on the hike, we will check your skills for understanding. When you get back, you will have a week to complete the quiz and then receive your certificate which you can print out. Maximum number of participants is 14: Hydration is essential: You will be directed to drink water at regular intervals to ensure that you remain safe and hydrated. We expect that you will take this as seriously as we do. We will be required to wear masks and keep strict social distancing protocols in place. Leaders will stay ahead and behind and will stop frequently for health checks but not hike close to you. You will get wet in the pools as there has been some recent flooding so there is water! You may want a spare pair of trainers in order not to get your hiking shoes wet. We will be amending the regular trail to make it shorter, a maximum of 2.5 hours. The first hour-plus will be spent ascending through a gorge with pools of water of varying depths. Maximum depth is about 1 1/2 meters, waist-deep depending on your height. The boulders in the pools are moss-laden and therefore slippery. Water shoes with good grips, neoprene socks or dive shoes will give you the traction you need. Absolutely NO SANDALS or FLIP-FLOPS. Trail Type: Loop Distance: 8 km Altitude Gain: 260 meters Time: 2.5 hours (shortened for summer) Terrain: Steep, some exposed ledges, some scree (loose rocks) Suitable For: Beginners looking for a challenge.

Hikers who do not show up to a hike will receive a credit to attend a future hike. We hire our trekking guides based on the number of expected hikers, not the number who hike. We will not refund, but we will make sure you can get a hike when you are feeling better. If a hike gets rescheduled due to weather (rain, wind, excessive heat, etc.) or environmental conditions (landslides, flooding, road closures, etc.), customers are given the option to move to the rescheduled hike or choose another hike of equal value for the season.
