Jabal Bil Ays, Ras Al Khaimah

Take a ride up Jabal Bil Ays--at 1,934 m (6,316 ft) above sea level, the country's tallest mountain. On the way up, the winding road takes you between foothills and across rugged, rocky terrain boasting lots of interesting geological features. Pull over at one of the natural viewing areas and admire the impressive vistas that each twist and turn in the road provides. Rumor has it that the mountain will soon be getting the five-star treatment, with a hotel, cable car, golf course, and ski slope all planned, following the opening of the mountain road in 2015. Until then, it stands as an impressive natural landmark, with no facilities except for the road. Stock up with water and food before your journey, and drive carefully on the tortuous route. Plan my trip to Ras Al Khaimah with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

  • Beautiful and satisfying.Roads are really good. There is place at the top where you can do barbeque. The place at the top of the mountain is spectacular.. definitely will visit again.
  • Nice place Jebel Jais but take care of cleaning otherwise there will be hefty fine Aed 500 starting and while issuing fine they will take your ID and for paying you have to visit again RAK to get back your ID and payment.
  • My favorite place for camping.. worth the drive. Maintained clean.. winter is the best time.. wear appropriate clothing it’s always 10 degrees cooler than the ground level. take enough food charcoal firewood and water. Do not litter there’s fine waiting for you 😬. No charcoal or bonfire on ground. Take a grill with you so you can burn firewood to keep you warm. Always use garbage bins provided, there is a separate bin for charcoal. Keep it clean enjoy your stay.. Images are copyrighted. Prior permission required.
  • Nature at its best - One of the best places to be camping - temperature goes nearly to single digit during the winter time - Worth the long drive- The sunrise is to die for in the morning - You will be awe struck with the view of the mountain -They now have proper cafes just before you reach the top . MUST VISIT
  • One of the best place to go for a drive with friends. The climate at the top is very good even in summer.
