This via ferrata (a climbing route secured by steel cables) is a first for the Middle East. Climbers traverse a 1km course, including two short zip-line sections, around the base of Jebel Jais, reaching 120m at the highest point. Advance bookings are required. All participants are transferred to Jebel Jais by van from the meeting point in RAK City.

The via ferrata only operates in the cooler months, approximately mid-November to mid-May. Although prior climbing experience is not necessary, you will need to have a good head for heights, a decent level of fitness and hiking shoes.
