RAKTDA today announced that visitors and residents will have easier access to the UAE’s highest mountain with the launch of a new shuttle service from the heart of the destination. Operating from Ras Al Khaimah City Centre and the Al Hamra / Al Marjan Island area to Jebel Jais, the shuttle will make the World’s Longest Zipline and the Viewing Deck Park even more accessible for everyone.

The launch of the shuttle service will also aid tour operators from key international source markets bringing holidaymakers to the destination to experience the Emirate’s adventure tourism offer.

With the average temperature ten degrees cooler in the mountains, the UAE summer is an opportune time to enjoy Jebel Jais Mountain. Featuring Jebel Jais Flight, officially the world’s longest zipline at 2.83km and a Viewing Deck Park complete with observation points and food trucks, this is a day trip not to be missed.

Recently opened at the Viewing Deck Park is the new Puro Express, a mountain top version of Puro Restaurant, the Emirate’s first rooftop lounge overlooking the stunning coastline. Featuring a light bite menu of pastries, pizza and salad, Puro Express is the ideal snack stop when you’re in the mountains, open daily from 11am to 8pm on weekdays and 9am to 8pm on weekends.

Haitham Mattar, CEO of Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority said: “The introduction of the Jebel Jais Shuttle service is a testament to our constant efforts to make our visitors trip to Ras Al Khaimah a memorable one. The new shuttle service will ensure a relaxing drive for our visitors to our key tourist destination in the Emirate which boasts the world’s longest zipline as well as 360-degree panoramic views from the Viewing Deck Park.”
