Canyoning: Snake Canyon (L-Fork) – Level 2
Canyoning: Snake Canyon (L-Fork) - Level 2
Deep amongst the highest mountains in Arabia we descend into the famous left fork of Snake Canyon. Exploring the river course as it cuts darkly through the mountain you will get up close to the wildlife living in the depths of the ravine. Cliffs hundreds of meters high hem you in on either side, sculpted into fascinating shapes by millions of years of water. It is a geologically awe-inspiring place. Wearing buoyancy aids and helmets, you will scramble, jump, swim and, depending on water levels, abseil as we make our way over and round the boulders and obstacle strewn gorge.
At the other end enjoy a much needed rest and warm-up as you have a picnic lunch in the sunshine.
Except from swimming, you do not need any previous skills or experience to enjoy this trip but it is reasonably demanding and moderate fitness is required. We provide all equipment and the instructor.
Sun cream, sunglasses, hat, waterproof camera or case!
Medium sized back-pack so that you can carry your water (the back pack will get wet)
Comfortable, loose fitting clothes that you can swim in
A change of clothes for the journey back.
Light comfortable trainers (which will get wet-NO SANDALS)
If you have a wet suit, please bring it
Guides TBC before trip. Lead instructor:
This is an entry level Canyoning trip, none technical and a lot of fun. Scrambling and jumping off rocks into fresh water this trip at most requires just a bit of coaching odd the instructor. Helmets and buoyancy aids supplied you will pass through Snake Canyon with steep walls that rise 100m – 150m high above you, narrowing at one point to only a couple of meters wide.
This trip is based on around 2 hours.
4×4 is needed to access the location.
