Road Trip and Short Trek to UAE's Highest Elevation, Jebel Jais

18-February-2017 Saturday in Ral Al Khaimah Emirate, United Arab Emirates

My 50th solo backpacking trip, and of course, usual budget do-it-yourself itinerary from arrival to departureThis was just a short day trip just to see the glimpse of Ras Al Khaimah and without a concrete itinerary, just go where my gut feeling wanted that day. Since my initial plan was to scout for possible trekking routes in Hajar Mountains on cheapest way, I decided to negotiate a cab and go straight up to Jebel Jais highest elevation.

Ras Al Khaimah is one of the seven emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The emirate is in the northern part of the UAE, bordering Oman's exclave of Musandam. Ras al-Khaimah has the most fertile soil in the country, due to a larger share in rainfall and underground water streams from Omani mountains. Jabal Jais, is a mountain on the border between Oman and United Arab Emirates, with an elevation of 1,911 masl. 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 masl.
