    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.

  2. sorry for late comments.

    that was an awesome journey at the last spot (curtesy @RahimdadBhai) we actually saw Sir Baniyas Island, the mountains looks like old jurassic park movie😎. 

    it's a beautiful spot with the ocean both side. mouth watering idly and a magical drink by Rahim Bhai. At the last we can never gonna forget A Shisha with Kiwi & ATF flavor. well it's a long story behind ATF flaovor 😂😂. we can share this story on next drive with other Carnity members. 

    Thank you all to support me specially @GauravBhai for pulling out my Accord from sand with his skills.

  3. Guyz..
    very last update is, its an open place and no authority/restriction were involved to to reach the final point.
    i was planning to see the area by my self yesterday, but stuck on some office jobs. though the guy who visited there is on Hajj now, and I'm expecting to receive some picture from him to get an idea, whether its a worth trip or not.

    I will be very glad if anyone have an idea to make this trip happen. we can also reschedule this trip as per Carnity members suggestions. 

    As per @GauravBhai, mercury will be high on day light at that place because its a coastal line, as well as humidity might be on its peak. so the evening drive have some +edge as compare to day light.  

    Awaiting feedback or any alternative plans.

    Dear all CARNITY members,

    It is my very first time to showcase a unique road trip on western coast line of United Arab Emirates toward Tarif on Ghuwaifat national highway. I got this idea to introduce this trip on Carnity when some of my colleagues randomly explore the location.

    Description: its 2 hr 43 min drive, 265 KM from Jebel Ali as per below map. (Area - Qareen Al Aish).My colleagues have spotted numbers of turtles, sea snakes, octopus, crabs, water dams, Mangroves, different type of beaches, Palm tree farms and my more. Its actually a man made island as per (Image 2) and only a tiny road is linked to the final spot at the end.  

    Draw Back: There is no street lights on internal roads, so the best time to experience this place is in a day light.

    Level of Drive: All types of vehicles can reach to the final spot, also there is few white sand beaches where only 4X4 can go through.

    There is plenty of spot where we can clicks some mesmerizing pictures for our Carnity group and keep our photo gallery healthy enough.  Before joining Carnity i have explore many places by my own to the south west side of UAE, but i have never explore to the coast line. 

    According to me, I think we should explore this area in a big numbers group to create an another milestone trip for Carnity. I will keep my research on about this particular place until we finalize to plan this trip. Your comments and feedback will be highly appreciated.
