Zipline reopens in UAE’s highest peak Jebel Jais

Ras Al Khaimah is anticipating its busiest outdoor activity season to date as the Jebel Jais Via Ferrata (Iron Path) challenge begins from November 1 2017.

Since launching in November last year, the Jebel Jais Via Ferrata, which sees enthusiasts climb and trek almost 400 feet above sea level on the country’s highest peak soaring 1,934 meters, has become one of the most thrilling experiences in the UAE.

A ’bucket list’ adventure, Ras Al Khaimah’s 470 meter-long Jebel Jais Via Ferrata spans the rocky facades of Jebel Jais which stands atop the rugged Al Hajar Mountain range, where the temperature is usually 10°C lower than the average Gulf temperatures.

Toro Verde, the world’s leading zip line operator, has been appointed to operate the Jebel Jais Via Ferrata and Jorge Jorge, CEO of Toro Verde Ras Al Khaimah, said, “We have already witnessed significant interest in its return, and we expect to welcome a greater number of adventure travelers to Jebel Jais through to 2018.”

The Jebel Jais Via Ferrata caters to a wide range of ages and fitness levels. Tourist groups are able to choose from the three routes in twice-daily supervised tours starting at 9:00am and 1:00pm.

Tickets to experience the Jebel Jais Via Ferrata, are priced at AED400 each. Complimentary bus transfers for ticket-holders are available to Jebel Jais from Tulip Inn Ras Al Khaimah via shuttle buses that depart at 8:00am and 12:00pm.
