    flying like Superman and felt very safe.
    Highly recommend this zipline to anyone who wants to experience flying like Superman at about 100 mph for a couple minutes. I have a bit of a fear of heights - would never bungy jump or parachute - but felt safe the whole time. Staff were professional. Was the first zipline I've ever tried and don't regret it. Bit of a drive from Dubai, about 2.5 hours one way.

    Fun for all - all for fun!
    I had a brilliant time from start to finish. Was grouped with another 7 people to do the Sky Tour then the Sky Flight. All the staff were very helpful from start to finish. Extra shout out to Azhar - perfect sense of humour. His harmonica is a special touch to his safety gear🤣 I would totally recommend doing the Sky Tour as a build up before doing the main zipline (flighl itself. Breathtaking to say the least!!

    Jebel Jais, Family Camping
    It was indeed an absolute adventure , a breath of a fresh air, as well as perfect weather in winter. the fact that we are living in the UAE, December or winter here is a must awaited season. A season for camping. We went on a weekend getaway and very suprised on the perfect location Jebel Jais mountain never fails to surprise us with its natural picturesque beauty.Nearby viewing deck areas parking is absolutely free. there were plenty of camping locations to choose from on the way up to the mountain. I suggest to travel in the morning to find a great spot and set up your tents before dark. there were security patroling around to make sure bonfire were properly lit. large bins are designated every where so there is no reason to litter. A complete package for family who love adventure on the rocky mountain. next morning we found ourselves appreciating a beautiful sunrise and a very cold and breezy weather.

    Jabel jais camp site near the sledder and world’s largest zipline
    This place is very nice, the cool breeze and the morning sunrise is great. I want to try the sledder and the zipline but it was temporary closed. It is good good for camping site, but during evening while in camp, there were people coming too, for camp., because its open 24/7.They are noisy,we cannot sleep anymore untill moring.. There should be time for silence.

    Go for Sledder. It’s safe for individuals who are scared.
    We went to Jebel Jais mountain mainly for Sledder and trekking. Both were fantastic one advise - if you want the best experience of sledder (that is high/ full speed) make sure the rider in front of you is at least 30 seconds ahead. If the rider in front of you is slow - your cart will automatically slow down and dampen your experience.

The road is a miracle of engineering and the views are fantastic. However it comes at a cost. If you like the serenity and peace of mountains and nature go somewhere else. The ease of access via the amazing road up to Jebel Jais means that the place is crowded and noisy with day trippers and campers . Don’t camp here . There are cars roaring past your tent all through the night and very few places to camp which are not right on the roadside. The lack of camping spots means that they are crowded and noisy with music being played.

Great afternoon out if you like a windy drive up to top of highest Mountain in UAE.
Superb rock formations & views from various stop off points with refreshments in half a dozen places
Worth an afternoon out on a non beach day ✔️

My recent visit to Jebel Jais in Ras Al Khaimah was nothing short of extraordinary, deserving a well-earned five-star rating. This majestic mountain, the highest peak in the UAE, offers a truly unique experience, combining natural beauty with thrilling adventure.

The drive up Jebel Jais is an adventure in itself. The winding roads offer stunning views of the rugged landscape, and the higher you go, the more mesmerizing the scenery becomes. Reaching the top, I was greeted by awe-inspiring panoramic views that are simply unparalleled. The tranquility and the cool breeze at the summit provide a welcome escape from the city's hustle and bustle.

For adventure enthusiasts, Jebel Jais is a paradise. The world's longest zipline here is a must-try, offering an adrenaline rush like no other, with breathtaking views as you soar across the mountain landscape. There are also various hiking trails for different skill levels, each offering its own unique perspective of the area's natural beauty.

What's remarkable is how Jebel Jais caters to everyone. Whether you're an adrenaline junkie or just someone seeking a peaceful retreat in nature, this place has something for you. The facilities, including viewing decks and rest areas, are well-maintained, ensuring a comfortable visit for all.

In conclusion, Jebel Jais is not just a mountain; it's a destination that offers a blend of serenity and adventure. Its natural beauty, coupled with the well-thought-out amenities, makes it a must-visit spot in Ras Al Khaimah. Whether you're a resident or a tourist, a trip to Jebel Jais is an unforgettable experience that should definitely be on your UAE itinerary.
