As the weather warms with the onset of the 2018 Summer, this route took on the trek late or trek high summer strategy, with an all-height-gained-must-be-retained mentality. We headed sharply in an upward direction therefore, camping at around 3000'/900m looking down on a picturesque mountain village, and remained high until late afternoon the following day, then dropping height to find some cold pools worthy of a quick swim in the wadi. This made the temperatures still very reasonable throughout. The actual move time for this route was 17 hour 20 mins, at a Moderate pace. With a 4x4 you are able to park as high up as (WP2), which will save around 2 hours of walking. (1 hour each way).

To note: I estimate temperatures in the hajar mountains by taking away 1'C for every 500ft, or 2'C for every 300m gained. This has been really consistent, and won me many a bet!

The difficulty of this route ranged from an Easy Hike to Very Difficult. Lower Wadi Niqab has a track, and is therefore easy. The crux of the route is Middle Wadi Niqab (Reference Heli Hike) between (WP19-25) which I graded the route off. Other 'Difficult' sections are the drop from the village into Niqab (WP14-17) and the Bristly Ridge section (WP5-8). The trek up from Niqab to the village, is a Moderate (WP3-4), and the remainder of the route is Easy.

As is usually the case with these routes, it's probably best used, by being broken into sections and used to create routes of your own, to your own spec, although it can be done as a whole evidently. The route from the wadi to the village is certainly a nice short trek in itself (WP2-4) for example.

This route had 6 sections.

1. WP 01 - 03 - Wadi Niqab Walk in - 1 Hour 30 mins - 5.7km - (200m/650' height gain)
2. WP 03 - 04 - Wadi Niqab up to the Villages - 45 mins - 1.3km - (250m/800’ height gain)
3. WP 04 - 08 - Bristly Ridge - 2 Hours 45 mins - 4.2km - (600m/2000' height gain)
4. WP 08 - 13 - The Plateau, Peak and the Villages - 3 Hours 45 mins - 8km - (500m+ then 400 descent / 1600'+ then 1300' descent)
5. WP 13 - 19 - The descent into Wadi Naqab - 2 Hours 45 mins – 5km – (600m / 2000’ descent)
6. WP 19 - 03 - Wadi Niqab Walk out - 4 Hours 20 – 11km - (350m/1100’ descent)
1. WP 03 - 01 - Wadi Niqab Walk out - 1 Hour 30 mins – 5.7km - (200m/650' descent)

    I have just started doing small two to three hours hiking, in curiosity I am asking you went in a group organized by any adventure company or you went alone with friends.

    I have done showka pools, wadi abadilah, jebel yanas balcony hike and mleika desert walk. I am residing in ras al khaimah so please suggest me easy and moderate hikes in ras al khaimah

    Wikiloc requires a technical difficulty attached to each route, so look through the routes that I and others have put here for easy routes. I always organise my own treks/climbs rather than going with large groups, which is a bit more risky if a route is experimental.
