The UAE's Highest Peak Is About to Become Even More of a Hot Spot With This Epic Attraction


The United Arab Emirates already has so much to offer as a tourist destination with the Burj Khalifa, Dubai Miracle Garden and the Yas Marina pulling in visitors from far an wide. And now the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah is pulling out all the stops to get 1 million visitors by the end of 2018.

Coming this October, RAK will open up what sounds like a sensational series of viewing decks at the country's highest peak in the Al Hajar Mountain range. The Jebel Jais Observation Deck will turn the area, which is already popular with hikers and bikers, into an awesome destination to view bird life, while enjoying a picnic 1,934 meters above sea level.

"The deck will let visitors take in stunning sea and mountain views, and the magnificent sunrises and sunsets which cast a dancing performance of light and shadow over the area every morning and evening," Haitham Mattar, CEO, Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority, explains. "The Jebel Jais Observation Deck will also include a versatile events arena and a permanent area for food trucks serving members of the public and international guests who want to experience the fresh mountain air in temperatures that are traditionally around 10 degrees lower than the UAE average."

The Jebel Jais Via Ferrata plays hosts to many zip-liners and trekkers each year, and the observation deck – lit entirely by solar energy – will make the perfectas camp for adventurous types.
