Via Ferrata - Jebel Shams


Trek 1 ½ hours along a balcony at 2000m, passing the abandoned village of Sap Bani Kamis, stopping for lunch at a beautiful secluded pool (swim optional). This route takes you to the start of a stunning 150m vertical climb which then leads to the best view on Jebel Shams.

Attached to a steel cable via specialised equipment you ascend the original route that the villagers once took but with no protection, using wooden pegs and chock stones to assist in their climb. Behind you is the Arabian Grand Canyon (Wadi Gul) with an exposure of over 1000m.

The climb is split into three sections, the first two are divided by a ledge where it is possible to stop for a photo and to have a drink before continuing up the cliff.

Once at the top a short walk reveals another steel cable leading up and over the edge into the wadi where our vehicles will be waiting.

No previous experience is required but you will need a reasonable level of fitness, some upper body strength and a head for heights.

Camera/phone attached to a lanyard (incase you drop it)
