RAKHABAT CANYON

Also written Rakabat Canyon or Raqabat Canyon*

Rakhabat Canyon is a narrow gorge that accesses Jebel Um Ishrin from its Eastern side. The gorge is a long narrow pathway between steep honeycombed sandstone cliffs.

Rakhabat Canyon is offered as a trekking/scrambling activity and takes minimum 2 hours to complete. It is offered as a stand alone activity or can be combined with a half day 4×4 tour to construct a full day itinerary year round. During the longer days between April and October it can be added to a full day tour and is enjoyable early in the day when the temperature is comfortable for walking.The GPS coordinates are 29.57064N, 35.436762E
