Dibba, the hidden gem for DWS

By |June 19th, 2019|Adventure, Musandam, Oman, Rock Climbing|

If you think it is too warm to be in the outdoors, then you “know nothing Jon Snow”. The time of the year has come when climbers start organizing (noncommercial, because we are cool) weekend DWS trips to Dibba Musandam DWS Oman. I can easily argue Dibba is one of the top locations for DWS. But I can also argue that there is not many other options 😉 for [...]

Omalo to Shatili Trek – Georgia

By |February 28th, 2019|Adventure, Georgia, Hiking, Sport, trekking|

Omalo to Shatili trek is probably the best trek I have done in Georgia. The donkey paths connect the old traditional villages which played an important historical role in the face of enemies. The scenery consists primarily of massive valleys split with a big river, mountains, and old villages with interesting stone architecture surrounded by the famous Georgian watch towers. The full Omalo to Shatili trek takes up to [...]

Wadi Naqab Hike

By |February 20th, 2019|Adventure, Hiking, Sport, UAE|

Wadi Naqab is another must-do hikes in the UAE. This intermediate beautiful hike is known for the village on top of the mountain. The Path: The starting section of Wadi Naqab is a graveled road that goes along the Wadi (canyon) bed. This section goes for about 2km* of relatively easy horizontal path (*this distance might vary based on where you start from, as some 4x4 can [...]

Jabal Shams Via Ferrata

By |May 26th, 2018|Adventure, Oman, Sport, Via Ferrata|

Another famous Via Ferrata in Oman is located at Jabal Shams (Sun’s mountain) at the end of the breathtaking As Sab W6 Balcony Hike. The Path: Jabal Shams Via Ferrata starts just above the As Sab old abandoned village, close to the lake. Most of the route is vertical split by a horizontal section just before the end. The rigging is well done, though I believe some [...]

As Sab W6 Balcony hike

By |May 26th, 2018|Adventure, Hiking, Oman, Sport|

As Sab W6 balcony hike (also know as Oman Balcony hike) is yet one of the most scenic and famous hikes of Oman. It is for all levels and kids friendly (with adult companions). I recommend doing Jabel Shams Summit hike if you want a longer and more challenging version of this hike. The Path: The path is straightforward, easy and very well maintained. There are few exposed [...]

Jabel Shams Summit hike

By |May 26th, 2018|Adventure, Hiking, Oman, Sport|

Jabel Shams is the highest mountain in Oman with an altitude of 3,028 m. This hike is also known as W4 route and Rim walk to summit. The hike is relatively moderate, includes some serious jaw-dropping scenery, strong winds and occasionally subzero temperature with snow. Though the real summit is where the military base is located and not accessible for civilians, the false summit provides some awesome scenery, with [...]

Snake Canyon Oman

By |May 16th, 2018|Adventure, Canyoning, Oman, Sport|

Snake Canyon is probably one of the few canyons in Oman that will kick your butt with adventure, increase your heart beats and give you a dose of adrenaline but considered on the easier side of the canyons chart. Hey! I said easier, doesn’t not mean it is easy and you have to underestimate it. There are many recorded accidents and few death incidents because of this one. I [...]

It is underwater exploration, the sport of swimming underwater with the SCUBA (Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus) gear Scuba diving is one of the least body impact sports, however it could be fatal if its rules are not respected.

ALPINE CLIMBING

By |April 29th, 2018|Adventure, Sport|

Alpine climbing is similar to mountaineering, but it's done in a faster and lighter manner. In addition to having a high level of fitness, the climber must pack the bare minimum of equipment to attempt a faster climb than the one usually planned in mountaineering. I do it cause I can blog will use Alpine climbing to refer to any technical and/or strenuous mountain climbing trip done light and [...]
