Wadi Naqab is a nice place off-road destination located in Ras Al Khaimah, UAE. It is great for hiking and for camping as well. This hike needs SUV or 4X4 car to reached the starting point.
The wadi in our route have large boulders and a steep stairways that leads to the plateau. It is suitable for intermediate hikers. When you reached at the top there where farm and village. The view is amazing!

I did hiked in Wadi Naqab (bat cave side) twice and it was all great. It was organized by Arabian FiTrekkers. On my first hike it was lead by Tarek and on my second hike lead by Faisi. Since I did it twice I will show some photos below based on dates.
