MAKE SURE TO CHECK MY BLOG POST (LINK BELLOW) FOR ALL THE IMPORTANT DETAILS ABOUT THIS HIKE (https://www.theroadreel.com/best-uae-hikes-wadi-naqab/). Wadi Naqab is a place like no other in the UAE. This is an intermediate level hike with part suitable for beginners.

Lots of bouldering along the way, seasonal pools, narrow gorge, steep climb up and down to ancient Al Sanat village. Some balconies and ledges, and ropes added for assistance-nothing major or technical but need to be taken into consideration.
NOTE1:Begginers skip WP3 and continue walking in the wadi till WP6. WP3-WP5 is a balcony walk with no clear path to climb down, so if not experienced, just stick to the wadi.

NOTE2: skip WP10 to WP12 and head from WP9 to WP13. There is a way to Al Sanat village at WP10, but it is not clear, and it is better first to complete wadi koob part and head up from the end of wadi Koob, and return back down from the village to WP10.

    I completed this trail in late February (the temperature started at 23° and finished at 27°). It was sunny but not extremely hot. I drank 2L of water. It took me 3:40 hrs (lunch break included).

    You can drive to the trailhead with a sedan.

    Very nice and accurate description about this trail. Plus, it was nicely marked all the way.

    There was just a little bit of water in the last pool of Wadi Koob. Overall, very beautiful hike!

    Dear Ausra...I am very excited to do this trail this weekend, but I am only going to do till the pink wall. How long did it take you to reach it?

    Hi Mynameismean, not sure what you call pink wall, but if that is the red/orange wall, then it will be a very short hike. Should not take more than an hour to reach it if you park as far as you car can reach by your car. It is even less probably (taken you are not going on a balcony that leads behind the red wall

  • Mynameismean 09.Nis.2021

    Oh yeah red wall 😄 Thank you for the info. Last question, is the first picture here the red wall?

    Hey Mynameismean, the first picture is inside wadi koob, you have to hike there quite a bit, with bouldering and passing through balconies on the mountain. Please read my blog post that I shared here for full details: https://www.theroadreel.com/best-uae-hikes-wadi-naqab/

    If you only want to go to the red wall, then in this post I describe how to get there. Note that parking now is much closer than I previously indicated in my post (they dug the road in the wadi): https://www.theroadreel.com/red-wall-hike-in-wadi-naqab/
