British hiker dies in Ras Al Khaimah mountains

Jebel Jais

At 1,934 metres, Jebel Jais is the UAE’s tallest peak and every bit as rugged and wild as you would expect. The Ras Al Khaimah government wants to attract more visitors and plans to open a mountain viewing deck in October and new hiking paths. There is also a nearby health resort and adventure sports facilities including the Middle East’s longest zip-line, the 470-metre Via Ferrata.

A British hiker died after he got into difficulties in the mountains in Ras Al Khaimah.

The man became trapped in the mountains at Al Manei area of the emirate.

The National Search & Rescue Centre managed to rescue his three fellow climbers and airlift them to safety.

National Ambulance told local media that it was alerted to the incident, and immediately dispatched a rescue chopper. The rescued hikers were brought to Fujairah hospital
