Visitors to Ras Al Khaimah’s Jebel Jais will now have easier access through a shuttle service, the Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority (RAKTDA) announced on Wednesday.

With the average temperature ten degrees cooler in the mountains, the UAE summer is an opportune time to enjoy Jebel Jais Mountain.

According to RAKTDA, the shuttles will operate from Ras Al Khaimah City Centre and the Al Hamra and Al Majran Island area.

“The new shuttle service will ensure a relaxing drive for our visitors to our key tourist destination in the emirate.”

Jebel Jais is home to Jebel Jais Flight, which, at 2.83 kilometres, is officially the world’s longest zipline, as well as a viewing deck park complete with observation points and food trucks.

Among the new features of the viewing deck is Puro Express, a mountain top version of Puro Restaurant, the emirate’s first rooftop lounge.
