RAK Ruler shares breathtaking videos and photos of mountains engulfed in clouds
His Highness Sheikh Saud Bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah, shared breathtaking views from the summit of Jebel Al Sahab in Ras Al Khaimah on Friday.
The RAK Ruler trekked to the summit himself.
Sheikh Saud said on Instagram, “As the early morning sun rises, I photograph and contemplate this enchanting scene created by Almighty God near the summit of Jebel Al Sahab in Ras Al Khaimah.
“It’s a scene that never fails to elicit happiness, positive energy and optimism, enriching the imagination with the greatness and beauty of nature, amid the majestic mountains of the UAE.”
The valleys, dams and mountains and a green carpet covering the Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah have turned the region into a beautiful oasis, which celebrates nature and strengthens environment sustainability.
Starting at Wadi Shawka or Shawka valley, where you can feel a cold breeze, you walk past fragrant palm trees, flowers and plants, and move on to Wadi Al Layat, Wadi Al Munai, Wadi Naqab and Wadi Al Zaytoon.
Wadi Shawka showcases the beauty of nature through its charming environment, mountains and gardens, as well as the plants that decorate the summit of Al Sahab, which allows adventurers to hike the mountain while enjoying nature.
From the summit of Yanas Mountain, you can see the old houses of the ancestors of the Emirati people, which tell visitors the story of their lives full of patience, wisdom and determination.
Wadi Al Beeh, which was established in 1982, is located at the entrance of Jebel Jais, which is the highest mountain in the UAE.
Valleys and dams create a naturally rich ecological system, as they supply nearby farms with water throughout the year and during drought and are important to tourism, enabling residents and tourists to camp and enjoy nature.
Ras Al Khaimah has 31 dams with a total storage capacity of 26.2 million square metres of water. These dams collected large quantities of rainwater on 11th and 12th January, 2020, amounting to 23.33 million square metres.
