  • How difficult is the trek?

    We can divide the hike into 2 sections, easier one and more difficult one:
    - The first part is enjoyable for everyone as walking through dry wadi offers a view of unique high rock walls reaching up to the sky among the route. This first part has slight elevation and you can expect rough terrain, boulder hopping and some easy rock climbing, where you can use this opportunity to bond with each other within a group by helping each other out. Within approximately 2,5 km we reach a beautiful balcony known as “hanging garden” with live plants hanging down from rock plateaus. We will hike the steeper part to reach the top of the hanging garden and continue our way to the vertical wall.

  • Is the Trek suitable for everyone?

    In the first part where we work as a team to ensure, everybody will be able to climb this 3-4 m high wall all the way up.
    Even this part may seem scary, there is nothing to worry about and even explorers with no climbing skills can make it with help of our skilled instructor. After this point, the scenery will slightly change from walking through closed wadi to more open areas where after few hundred meters we start our real HIKING on fairly easy, but steeper terrain to the top of the mountain until we reach the summit with the abounded village. We will have time to explore this place. The view from the top is just breathtaking as you can see surrounding mountains, the village we started from, wadi and sea on the horizon.

  • How is the way back?

    After the break, we will start our way back through the old donkey trail. At this part, you will start to appreciate your HIKING STICKS and hiking boots with ankle support as the trail is mainly steep and consists of small rock, slippery terrain. This route brings us to the beginning of our hike.
