Wikiloc, Only for Reference. There can be errors on the GPS recording due to GPS Jumping in the Wadi / Mountain Sections.

I have been Fortunate to be acquainted with some Ace Hikers of the region with vast experience. I got an Opportunity to join this hike led by an Expert Hiker.

This Exploration hike was organised by Adventure Extreme group.

Jebel Yibir is mentioned as the 2nd tallest mountain of UAE as compared to jebel Jais. Jebel Mebrah which is bit higher is off limits due to Military intsallations on its summit =.

We started the Exploration hike from the top of Mebrah mountain last Civilian accessible point.
We had to pass through the Military gate and get their permission to pass through. They took our details and allowed, I'm not sure if it is common. It is in their discretion.

We Crisscrossed the mountains terrain to reach various Peaks of Yibir mountain range, Valleys deep down, few remote villages like Kanan where shepherds live and finally summitted the Real Yibir mountain at 1500 Meters Elevation.
This was one of my best Hiking moments.
I have summitted Jebel Jais True Summit Peak 6 times and Here I was, I was at the summit of Yibir mountain at 1500 meters Elevation.

This Trail should be taken as Exploration and Endurance testing by the Hikers that try as there are literally no resting places. Exposed to Sun full time.
Lots of mountains, Valleys, Ascent and Descent.
There are easier ways of Summitting the Yibir mountain, but it will not be fun.

Take care, take Precautions and Enjoy.

    Hi Patrick, this look quite interesting. I was aiming to hike jebel Yibir long time ago but the road leading up to the mountain seems to be suitable only for 4x4, is that true?I believe it is very steep which may be the reason that it might be not safe to go in a small sedan. Also, there is a guard at the bottom of jebel yibir, who stopped us one time and said not to go as it is not safe.. Please let me know :)

    Hello Ausra,
    Its a pleasure to hear from you.
    Regarding the car choice to drive up all the way to Jebel Mebrah ( The Military mountain ) is bit challenging due to Steep gradient and hairpin bends. Some people have driven Sedans too.
    I suggest you put the car into Manual gear mode and try to drive up.
    Worse to worse case, the car will drive up on 1st gear.
    Regarding the Guard at the bottom of Jebel Yibir, that check point has been moved to the top of the mountain with a Barrier gate with few armed guards around. I am not sure when the Guard post was moved from bottom to top.
    I have been to the top Guard post 4 times in last 4 months.
    The passage after the Barrier is purely upto their discretion.
    They usually ask for your EID and Car registration, the details which they record while entry but no checking during exit.
    They may ask your reason for visit, you can tell them Hiking.
    Photography is not allowed at the top due to Military base, Drones Banned.
    Take care, enjoy the hike and come back with great memories !!!

    Thanks, Patrick for your response. Sounds like an adventure, but I have to admit driving a sedan car there might not be the smartest idea. Last week we went to Yanas mountain and had to leave the car 4.5 km before the actual start of the trail. But we saw sedans passing through that road, still a mystery how they did it, as some parts were clearly not sedan material:)

    Hi Ausra,
    Yanas Road is graded offroad with steep incline and slippery surfaces.
    Yibir Road is steep All the way Asphalted.
    It's your choice to decide.
    Have a safe drive and enjoyable hike.
