Great things are done when Men and Mountains meet!
A short background of mine and my fascinations towards Mountains. I’m the son of Karakoram. I’m from a land which has five of the fourteen tallest mountains of the world. Like, K2, Nanga Parbat, Gasherbrum I, Broad Peak and Gasherbrum II.
Looks like a lake in Mountains:
In this article, I’m writing about a newly discovered place. It’s not a lake but a Dam. There are many dams in United Arab Emirates and most of them are in Northern Emirates. I’ve been to almost all of them but i liked the below one.
A panoramic view allows you to see beautiful mountains around you and lake in the center. The water of this dam is so clean. An unspoiled nature, a beautiful place to camp.
It’s pleasing. It’s a calm place with beautiful natural music, Like singing birds, croaking frogs and water’s sound when it hits rocks. The dusk was so beautiful, i cooked a steak and spoke about men’s mental health. I was the only guy, zero distraction. lol 🙂
Required Vehicle and Hike:
Getting there is easy and adventures too. A small car can easily reach to spot but it’s off-road. You should not expect a carpet road to this point, rocks might hit chassis of your car. However, a 4×4 is recommended.
There is no hike to this place so anyone can visit and enjoy the natural beauty. Since, the mountains are not very tall and have good foot grip, hiking is possible if you love it.
Keep UAE Clean:
It’s not a public place and not discovered even. There are no bins so garbage bags are highly recommended. I personally believe that carrying garbage bags along with all your camping gear isn’t difficult. We must save the nature and should not ruin it’s beauty. I visit many places and see that people don’t really care about their trash. They leave their trash when they don’t get monitored. This is one of the reason, I don’t share coordinates with everyone, unless someone is committed to keep spot clean.
Coordinates, Google Map:
Many people ask me for the locations. It’s something very important which i would like to mention here.
Well, It’s not my property. First, It’s God and 2nd is the Govt of United Arab Emirates. I’m thankful to the Govt of United Arab Emirates who has permitted residents to visit freely every part of UAE. So, everyone is allowed to explore but if you’re an office person and don’t have much time to explore, I can help you. I can share the coordinates of specific point so without wasting your precious time you can reach directly to your favorite spot.
Since, I work hard in exploring new places, consume fuel and write articles to make your trip convenient, i do expect small amount before sharing locations.
Pay a small amount and assure that you’ll keep the place clean and get coordinates!
