If you want a wild ride that gives you an adrenaline rush at 6,300 Feet while hanging from a harness, you’ve come to the right place (Jebel Jais Mountain). You might find it helpful to plan your trip to Jebel Jais in the United Arab Emirates by reading this blog post about my time on the world’s longest Jebel Jais Zipline there.
- The longest Zipline because it has a single span of 2,832 meters.
- The length of the world’s longest zip line is.
- There are 2.8 kilometers involved in total.
- How fast is the Jebel Jais zip line?
- In other words, up to 100 miles per hour.
Jebel Jais Mountain is in Ras Al Khaimah, the most northern United Arab Emirates. It looks out over the border with Oman. From Dubai, it takes between two and two and a half hours to get there. At almost 2,100 meters, Jebel Jais is the tallest point in the Emirates (7,300 feet).
We found ourselves completely immersed in Dubai’s many pleasures. MS. Jarral had a great time at Dubai Skydive. One of his friends saw the video of his skydiving and told him to go to Jebel Jais, where the world’s longest Zipline is. So, we left a lot of room in our schedule in Dubai to visit some less-visited places. The online video gave us our first taste of what to expect from the Jebel Jais Zipline. The truth is that MS. Jarral’s request that I try skydiving made me a little nervous since he had already done it.
You can reserve a spot on the Toro Verde-run Jebel Jais Flight Zipline.
I got a confirmation email after making my reservation online. Completed the Waiver Form, which says that Toro Verde is not responsible for anything wrong that might happen. I sent it to them in advance so they wouldn’t have to worry about filling it out when they got there.
How much does a ticket cost?
I couldn’t wait to find out how much it cost, to be honest. We were starting to worry about going over our budget because we had already spent a lot on our trip to Dubai. I found out the ticket would cost me 300 DHS when I reserved it. On the coupon, it said that there was a 50% discount. Yes, we were full of happiness.

Based on my own experiences, I give a review of the Jebel Jais Zipline.
I’ll never forget that day. When I think about how I felt when I wrote this in the morning, I’m glad that MS. Jarral pushed me to do this. When I woke up, I felt scared. From where I was staying in Al Seef Bur Dubai Creek to Jebel Jais, it took 2.10 hours to drive.
Jebel Jais is the best place to go on a road trip.
We went on an adventure together, and 45 minutes after leaving the city, we saw beautiful scenery. The last hour we spent climbing Jebel Jais, surrounded by the stunning Hajar Mountains and winding roads, was probably the most memorable part of our trip. Even on the way to Jebel Jais, you can see some beautiful sights.
The Jebel Jais Mountains are a popular place to see.
On the way to the top were observation points with stunning views of the Jebel Jais Mountains. Before starting our trip, we could make a few short stops at the observation decks. Many of these places are also great for camping.
Figure out how to get to the Toro Verde Information Center
The person who works at Toro Verde checked our tickets and let us into the visitor center. My ticket let me go straight to the front of the line 45 minutes before my time. If you don’t want to be late, you should arrive at least 30 minutes early.
Getting ready to leave Jebel Jais
I had already filled out the Waiver Form before I went to the Zipline outfitting area, so I wait in the designated area until I get my safety gear and flying suit. This shouldn’t take longer than ten minutes at most. If you already have a GoPro (like we did), don’t forget to bring it and its head mount so you can film your fantastic flight. If you don’t have a GoPro camera, you can rent one from the office for 100 AED plus 35 AED for the head mount.
The top of the mountain and the start of the flight:
After getting your things together, you’ll get on a shuttle that will take you to where Jebel Jais Flight begins. The shuttle took between 7 and 10 minutes for the rest of my group and me to get there. Once we got to the top, we could see the starting deck and a beautiful area view. I was nervous and excited, and from the looks on everyone else’s faces, I could tell I wasn’t the only one. When we got to the top, the tour guides gave us a briefing that covered some basic rules and safety procedures. When the lesson was over, we got in line. As the people in front of me in line ran, I started to worry.
Riding the Jebel Jais Zipline
It could get cold, especially at the airport where the flight leaves. I had been thinking about the wind, so I was ready with a windcheater. The temperature stayed around zero, and the wind chill made it feel much colder.
That Amazing Flight: I Felt Like Superman!
After waiting in line for only fifteen minutes, an unforgettable moment happened. At first, I volunteered for the part and had safety gear put on my flight suit. My instructor told me to put my hands behind my back so the air currents wouldn’t slow me down and I could reach the right speed. Once I gave the signal, the operator double-checked with his partner on the other end of the walkie-talkie, got the all-clear, gave us a little shove, and let go of the hold.
Even though it’s been a while, I still get chills when I think about the first few seconds. It was incredibly windy, and I was going well over 100 km/h. When I looked down, I couldn’t believe what I saw: rock-hard ground. I felt like a million dollars, and the view was gorgeous. I was no longer afraid and was having a great time. I thought I was a hawk flying over the mountains at that moment.
Speed and weight both affect how long you stay in the air. I got to the landing platform in just 2 minutes and 30 seconds. About 50 meters from the main deck, I realized I hadn’t put enough weight for the trip. At the landing end, the teacher reminded me of what we had learned before and told me to grab the pulling rope. Soon, I was holding the rope and climbing up to the landing platform.
Land back at the visitor center
When I got to the landing area, I didn’t have to wear my safety harness any longer. I had to reattach the harness and zip along while sitting down to get the last 100 meters to where the shuttle was waiting on the road. I took a few pictures and couldn’t wait to tell MS. Jarral about it when I returned to the Welcome Center.
