If you want to escape the city this weekend for a thrill-seeking adventure, then look no further than picturesque Ras Al Khaimah. Nestled deep in Wadi Galilah lies a mountain village that is the starting point for one of the most scenic, yet dangerous, hiking spots in the UAE.
Famously known as the Stairway to Heaven, this old shepherd’s route is not for the fainthearted. With drops of 300 metres, exposed rocks and an altitude of 1,800 metres, the 17-kilometre climb will mentally and physically challenge your limits.
