Sky’s the limit for adventure thrill-seekers on memorable trip to Jebel Jais mountain
Located in the Hajar mountains in Ras Al Khaimah, just over two hours from Dubai, thrill-seekers can test their mettle while harnessed to a zipline – suspended 1,680 metres above sea level.
Soaring through the air at up to 150kph, the adrenaline-pumping experience offers breath-taking panoramic views of the surrounding landscape.
The Jais Sky Tour features a series of seven zip lines, which provide a birds-eye view of the jagged cliffs and canyons around the mountain range, followed by an exhilarating walk across the UAE’s highest bridge.
Other attractions include six hiking trails, which are split between the upper and lower region of the mountain.
As part of the Jais Sky Maze, visitors are tasked with a series of obstacles which they must successfully navigate 10 metres above the ground.
The Middle East’s first protected mountain climbing route – a via ferrata – enables climbing enthusiasts to scale the region with the aid of a cable secured to the rocks.
Before embarking on an adventure at the top of Jebel Jais, visitors take in a scenic drive up to the summit. For an exhilarating journey, supercar enthusiasts can maximise their driving experience by renting a luxury vehicle, including a Ferrari, McLaren or Lamborghini.
The drive has proven a popular route among supercar owners who make the most of the winding roads in their top class vehicles.
For a memorable dining experience at the top of the mountain, guests can savour the breath-taking views of Jebel Jais while tucking into a sumptuous meal on an outdoor terrace at 1484 by Puro, which is currently the UAE’s highest restaurant.
