The Via Ferrata is a cross between rock climbing and mountaineering. It gives thrill-seekers and outdoor enthusiasts pleasurable exhilieration as they climb the same vertical cliff face as a professional climber without strenuous training or risk.
As you check in for your exciting adventure, you'll have a full safety briefing and discuss the various routes. Choose from the Ledge Walk, Middle Path, or for the fearless, the Julphar Scare. The mountaineering guides will fit you with your Via Ferrata harness and provide you with all your tools before heading out in the wilderness. You are always securely harnessed to the complex array of steel cables and ladder rungs permanently fixed into the rockfaces every five or so metres. Three zip-lines take you across inaccessible sections of the mountain. The longest flies you directly over the main Jebel Jais road that leads into the mountains.
The Ledge Walk is ideal for those that want a slightly less challenging mountain adventure. The hike takes around four hours to complete. It starts with a gentle climb over the undulating rocks synonymous with the Jebel Jais mountain peak. The more challenging vertical stretch leads you to the first and shortest zip-line via secure iron steps. Next, you'll climb a gradual slope that leads to the second-longest 60-metre zip-line, which allows you to start your descent slowly and to the exhilarating 300-metre zip-line, which takes you at speed into the wadi below.
