16 women from various GCC countries climbing the highest mountain peak of the region

16 women representing various GCC countries will climb Jebel Shams, the region’s highest mountain peak via Western Hajar mountain trek organized by Husaak Adventures in collaboration with Oman Ministry of Tourism from December 10 to 12, 2015 at Muscat, Oman. The three-day expedition will see the 16 female mountaineers making their way to Jebel Shams’s height of over 3,000 meters above the sea level.

 

Asma Al Hajri, Deputy Director General, International Tourism Promotions in Oman Ministry of Tourism, said: “We are happy to support the brave women in this exciting adventure. The trek to the summit of Jebel Shams will offer a dynamic and truly unforgettable experience that will challenge the athleticism of our participants. The trip reflects the spirit of solidarity within the Gulf region and the success of the hikers upon reaching the top will be commemorated by raising the flags of the GCC nations.”

 

The trek will begin in the afternoon of the first day with the group gathering at the designated meeting point in Muscat. The hike will cover a distance of over 20 kilometers in a trail deemed suitable for fit and active individuals. The trail has been classified as safe by the relevant environmental authorities and considered one of the most popular trekking sites within the Sultanate as it offers an outstanding view. The Trip is also part of the ministry’s efforts to stimulate and support such events to promote environmental and adventurous tourism in Oman given the stunning nature that the Sultanate enjoys.

 

We look forward to more challenges in the future, whereby the qualities of fitness and endurance are tested by courageous and determined Gulf ladies.

 

The group consists of: Linda Al Muqaimi, Rumaitha Al Busaidi and Salsabeel Al Busaidi representing Oman, Lulu Al Awadhi, Dalal Al Omar, Sabika Al Ayyar, Nourah Al Sabah, Lamia Al Ghareeb, and Aseel Al Shaheen from Kuwait, Nada Jamsheer, Hadya Fathallah and Fatima Fathallah from Bahrain. In addition to Nahid Al Dosary and Budoor Ashadawi from Saudi Arabia and finally Sharifa Yateem and Danah Al Ali from the UAE.
