HI Friends

I am excited to organize the first event in the New Year - Protected content

"Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it."
--Greg Anderson--

This is one of those trips where destination is not important, the journey is. The beautiful mountain/wadi route is fascinating as it unfolds. There is plenty of scope for hiking and trekking in the mountains which are mostly unexplored.

Meeting Point:Protected content
Terrain:
The terrain is a mix of paved and unpaved road & rocky terrain difficult in some areas.
