Hi friends
Are you up for this driving adventure?
Let us drive on the edge this time. I mean ‘literally’ on the ‘edge’.

The off-road route starts with a gentle gravel track for Protected content and then we take the turn to the rocky/mud terrain into the mountains till we reach the peak. On the way we will negotiate more than 20 hair pin bends to reach the peak with some breathtaking views from high altitude.

You are advised to keep away if you get vertigo.

Drive Overview:
- We'll start our drive from the meeting Point on Protected content at 11:00am.
- We will take a short break for 30 minutes in Ras Al Khaimah for Friday prayers around 12:30pm, we will resume the drive at 1 pm.
- We will drive in the wadi/mountains and explore the intriguing Pyramid-shaped features along the exciting route. The area offers plenty of scope for trekking and photography.
- We will return from the mountains before sunset, around 5:30 pm and settle down in the foothills of Jais Mountains for campfire and BBQ.
- Those who want to join us directly at the campsite are welcome 6:30 pm onwards. Camp location will be shared via WhatsApp group.

Important Note:
- The off-road track is a little tricky in some places so a 4X4 with (L) shift is a must for this drive.
- Please do not confirm if you are not sure that you can make it.
- If you are coming directly to the campsite you will not need a 4X4.
- No "open passengers list" for this drive. Only drivers can bring their own guests /passengers.
- We'll be having a BBQ on this trip. (Bring the hunger)
