Yesterday the organizers of HIGHLANDER Ras Al Khaimah United Arab Emirates presented the format and the iconic location of its newest edition.
HIGHLANDER55 RAS AL KHAIMAH x UAE is a 51km long hiking experience that will pass through Jebel Jais mountain and will carry on the HIGHLANDER movement globally - wilderness preservation and the reduction of human impact on the environment.
'There are not just astonishing vistas and impressive starry nights at Jebel Jais mountain. It is home to a number of mountain goats, camels, foxes, wildcats as well as hundreds of bird species. After the early winter rains of November, the mountains of Ras Al Khaimah burst into color with purple lilies, wild irises, and white daisies. There is so much more HIGHLANDER Ras Al Khaimah will offer, besides jaw-dropping photos on your social accounts'. – said Fadi Hachicho, Managing Director at HIGHLANDER Adventure, Ras Al Khaimah UAE.
Ras Al Khaimah has multiple eco-systems across its sandy deserts, coastal strips, salt flats, mangroves, and mountains, making it a fascinating place for nature lovers and adventurers. The newest HIGHLANDER adventure will take place from November 18th to 20th 2021 at the UAE’s highest peak, Jebel Jais, which is part of the spectacular Hajar mountain range that was formed over 70 million years ago in the northernmost emirate of the United Arab Emirates - Ras Al Khaimah.
