Scenic drive to Jabal Jais - highest point in UAE - 31 Mar 2017


Recommended Posts

Jabal Jais, is a mountain on the border between Oman and United Arab Emirates, with an elevation of 1,911 m (6,268 feet). The highest point of this mount is located on the Omani side, but a secondary hill (in the same mountain) west of this peak is considered the highest point of the United Arab Emirates, at 1,892 m (6,207 feet) above sea level. [Source: Wikipedia]

With forecast of rising temperature (35 degree) and to start the UAE summer chapter, we plan to look for morning drives now. And what better place to start other than the RAK mountain range which always are few degrees lesser than the other areas. Get ready to enjoy some of best snaky curved road making up to the to this grand Hajar mountain range. If current ongoing roadwork on top permit, we might make it to the top to enjoy the view from both sides of the mountain and enjoy the sea view. This drive will offer plenty of photo opportunity for the shutterbugs, so make sure to carry your best camera and long range lens.

Plan is to start early and finish early to escape the heat and yet have our Friday dose of fun and adrenaline. With this timing we will also eliminate the usual rush at this newly developing tourist site. So please be on time, as we are really pressed on time so if you are late then you have to catch up by yourself. We plan to come down before the Friday prayer timing so that people can pray in neighboring mosque below.

How is the steepness of this road, can 6 cyl sedan is capable to manage?

It will be fine for 6 cylinders and even for 4 cylinder car, it just that 4 might struggle little bit but it's doable safely.

@jason200 if we are down by 12:30 PM so you can reach Dubai by 2:00 PM.

Let's root for each other & watch each other grow.

      Dear friends,
      We are blessed to have new routes and challenges every week and the satisfaction of sitting and sharing a meal/snacks/drinks together and laughing over a few jokes or discussing the experience of the drive. Continuing that same spirit I am pleased to announce a secret route which not many people know off, this will include some desert driving which can be managed by all levels. The real secret lies in the route which will lead us to a ghost town through which we can approach our climb on the mountain where a path has been laid just for the known few. The promise when we reach on top is that you will find the climate there at least 4 to 5 degree lower than the temperature on ground level, so if it is 30 degrees down than on top it will be around 25 or 26 degree which is just beautiful. This is a flat, kind of table top surface on which we can lay and enjoy our spread for a few chats and laughs, plus for those shutterbugs there is plenty of beautiful scenes to shoot as well, and if we can adhere to the timings we can get shots both at sunset and by night.

      The beauty of this track is there are several exits, so anybody who would like to do the sand bit alone can do so and head out within 5 minutes to the closest road.
      If interested please sign up for this once in a year opportunity.
      Friday evening drive:
      Date: 07 April, 2017
      Meeting point : Adnoc Petrol Station Maleha Road (https://goo.gl/maps/mzb26kxzte72)
      Meeting time : 15:30 PM - 9:00 PM
      Plan: Lets drive from the petrol station through the silk route to the ghost town and up on top of the mountain to enjoy some cool weather.
      Basic recovery equipment such as 2 way radio, flag and air compressor are very important and carry lots of water and some snacks to share on top. Absolute compulsory to bring your stories, sense of humor and willingness to learn and follow instructions during the drive

      The Islamic New Year is supposed to be falling on Thursday, 21 September, so lets take advantage. Plus with the weather getting better it will be only cooler on top.
      The RAK mountain range which always are few degrees lesser than the other areas. Get ready to enjoy some of best snaky curved road making up to the to this grand Hajar mountain range. With last time's experience we can reach close to the top to enjoy the view from both sides of the mountain and enjoy the sea view. This drive will offer plenty of photo opportunity for the shutterbugs, so make sure to carry your best camera and long range lens.
      Plan is to start late afternoon and finish whenever we feel we have had enough to escape the heat and yet have our holiday dose of fun and adrenaline. With this timing we will also eliminate the usual rush at this newly developing tourist site. So please be on time, as we are really pressed on time so if you are late then you have to catch up by yourself.
      If anybody would like to bring along snacks, drinks, BBQ, playing cards, music box or any means of entertainment and fun is most welcome to join.
