Ras al-Khaimah

Experiential journeys will make you a storyteller

Bestowed with several natural gems to appreciate and a wealth of activities to embark in, Ras Al Khaimah is one of the lesser-known emirates of the UAE. Located at a distance of about one and half hours from downtown Dubai, the ‘forgotten emirate’ with its virgin beaches, verdant mountainsides and peaceful surroundings make an idyllic gateway for quick staycation. You can spend quality time in spotting the extremely rare Arabian oryx within the city limits that are saved by the environmentalists from the verge of extinction.

Ras Al Khaimah takes fair pride in making its way to the Guinness Book of World Records for having the world’s longest zipline which is located in Jebel Jais and stretches for 2.83 km. If you want to have some eerie experience during your UAE trip, visit the abandoned village of Jazirah Al hamra in Ras Al Khaimah. It is rumoured that the 14th century houses and mosques of the village are haunted by ‘jinns’. Despite its bizarre appearance and hearsays, the orange-coloured dilapidated edifices draw photographers from across the globe to take some of their best clicks.
