Wadi Shawka Family Drive & BBQ - 25 Oct 2019

Recommended Posts

It's time for Wadi Shawka - All level - Family drive with easy and scenic route for all drivers to enjoy the natural beauty of Wadi Shawka and it's mountainous range all around. Drive will end with BBQ, so we can rest and enjoy drinks with family and friends while doing the BBQ in the evening till night. 

As it's a all level drive, so it's gonna be easy for all drivers and 4x4 and if enough participation is there for an adventurous run, then I can take few cars for an hour long fun & challenging drive through the Shawka - Esfai river bed (with or without water).

Hey guys,

I'd absolutely love to join but got couple of questions.

I have an upcoming 10k obstacle challenge in Al Ain on Saturday. So I'd want to know is:

- Can I leave early? Aiming to leave by 7.

- Will it be easy for me to find my way out on my own? I wouldn't want to interept anyone's party time. 

Let me see if I can make it.

 

Cheers,

TJ

10K, OMG somebody is showing off his fitness regime here 😝......impressed.

Of course you can leave early with the google maps, as place we plan to chill is very much showing on all maps.

Just when you reach to the road (5-7 kms), call us back to update.

How to get to the place? We might go alone

There are more than few ways to get around shawka and follow the open trails, clearly visible on google maps, wikiloc etc. Only catch is you should be able to follow the trail (width wise) from where you can reverse or take a u-turn, as many places have weird stone placement that you can cross through easily but reversing will be a task for a single vehicle.

Below is the most easiest path that you can take without any risk involve.

Blue is the mountain shaded area for get together in front of lake.

I recorded this in reverse, so chequered flag is starting point.

For people aiming for adventure run take the second leg and you will have nice thrill for few kms, revert from blocked area.

Option 2 for more adventure run - Intermediate level.
