You’ve found an extreme ride that will give you a rush of excitement while you’re suspended in a harness at an altitude of 6,300 feet (Jebel Jais Mountain). This travel blog entry talks about my time on the world’s longest Zipline in Jebel Jais, United Arab Emirates.
Jebel Jais Mountain is in Ras Al Khaimah, the most northern emirate. It is on the north edge of Oman. From Dubai, it takes about two and a half hours to get there. Jebel Jais, just under 2,100 meters high, is the tallest mountain in the Emirates (7,300 feet).
We got caught up in the exciting nightlife of Dubai. MS. Jarral had a great time at the Dubai Skydive. A friend told him to check out the world’s longest Zipline at Jebel Jais after he saw a video of him skydiving. We planned our time in Dubai to see some of the city’s less-visited sights. The video showed us exactly what the first time on the Jebel Jais Zipline would be like. When MS. Jarral suggested I go skydiving, I was a little nervous because he had done it before.
Jebel Jais is a great place to go if you want to take a Mountain trip.
We left the city, and 45 minutes later, on our expedition, we were surrounded by beautiful nature that took our breath away. The best part of our trip was, without a doubt, the last hour we spent on top of Jebel Jais, taking in the beautiful views of the Hajar Mountains and the winding roads below. You don’t have to go to Jebel Jais to see the beautiful scenery in the area.
Jebel Jais Mountains A Must-See Place
Visitors could see amazing views of the Jebel Jais, ranging from many of the lookouts along the path to the peak. On the lookout, we could take a few quick breaks before starting our trip. A lot of these are also great places to camp.
Find your way to the visitor center at Toro Verde.
When workers at Toro Verde saw our passes, they let us into the museum. I was able to go 45 minutes early because I had a ticket. If you like being on time, you should do yourself a favor and get there at least 30 minutes early.
Getting ready to leave Jais Temple
After filling out the Waiver Form, I went to the right place to wait until I was given my flying suit and other safety gear. Only then did I try the Zipline. You shouldn’t spend more than five minutes here. Bring your GoPro and its head mount if you already have one, as we did, you can record your fantastic flight. The office will charge you 135 AED to rent a GoPro camera (100 AED for the camera and 35 AED for the head mount).
Coming to the top of the mountain and taking off:
After you get your things together, a shuttle will take you to the place where Jebel Jais Mountain Flight begins. We rode the shuttle for about 7–10 minutes to get to our destination with the rest of my group. I could tell from the looks on other people’s faces that they were just as nervous and excited as I was. When we got to the top, our tour guides talked briefly about the rules we had to follow and how to stay safe. We all got in a line when class was over. When the people in front of me in line started to run, I began to worry.
I felt like Superman on my great flight!
Just waiting in line for fifteen minutes led to a once-in-a-lifetime event. First, I volunteered for the part and ensured my flying suit had all the necessary safety gear. When I was learning, my teacher told me to put my hands behind my back so the air currents wouldn’t slow me down. As soon as I told the operator to go ahead, he checked with his colleague over a walkie-talkie, gently moved us forward, and let go of the hold.
Even though it’s been a while, I still get goosebumps when I think back to those first few seconds. I was going faster than 100 km/h because of how strong the wind was. I was shocked by what I saw when I looked at the floor. I felt like a million bucks because it was a beautiful scene. I was no longer afraid and had a great time.
How long you stay in the air depends on how fast you move and how much you weigh. I was at the landing pad in less than 2 minutes and 30 seconds. I was only about 50 meters from the main deck when I realized I hadn’t brought enough weight. The teacher reminded me of what I had learned before and told me to grab the pulling rope at the landing end. I grabbed the rope and quickly climbed to the landing platform.

Land and go back to the orientation center.
I could take off my safety gear when I got to the landing zone at Jebel Jais Mountain. To get the last 100 meters to where the shuttle was waiting on the road, I had to sit down in the harness and zip along. When I returned to the Welcome Center, I took a few pictures and couldn’t wait to tell you about it.
