Ras Al Khaimah-Introduction

Ras Al Khaimah has a unique archaeological legacy and archeological excavations and finds in the region have revealed the existence of a settlement with an advanced civilization that carried on trade since 5000 BC. Within its territory, the emirate combines the coast, the fertile agricultural plains, the desert and the mountains. Each of these environments has given rise to different lifestyles: the traders, fishermen and pearl divers of the coast. Ras Al Khaimah is a blessed rich rugged land with lofty mountains, fertile plains, sandy deserts, coastal areas, lush green plains, historical sites, creeks and lagoons all of which call for celebration. Attractions: The mountains of RAK, a unique natural feature, rose to a height of 2000 meters. Plenty of pretty wadis traverse through the mountains. Starting from Wadi Buh, these steep sided valleys go towards Masafi and then to a row of wadis like Ghayl, Shawka, Assumes and so on. The terrain is tough, rocky and challenging, calling for some adventurous trekking. The mangroves that flourish in and around RAK city are an added attraction. These mangroves run northwards along the coast in sheltered inlets and teem with birds and sea life. Considered to be the most fertile emirate, a town close to the main city of RAK, Digdaga, has a very big modern agricultural farm. Fruits, vegetables, milk and poultry are supplied to the other emirates from here. The sea around RAK too abounds in tuna fish. The mountains have enabled the setting up of stone quarries and cement factories.To the west of Digdaga, the impressive red dunes run in a northerly direction. Camel camps, farms, oasis and beautiful valleys are added values on the desert pass. Nestled in the lee of the mountains in the north of RAK, Shamal has several tombs whose historical background dates back to about 4,500 years ago. The modern village of Shamal houses the palace of the Queen of Sheba.

The long range of mountains extends as far as the Mossandam peninsula. The Khatts springs oasis is famed for its hot springs of sulphuric water, which has relaxing and therapeutic properties. A lovely tourist attraction surrounded by palm trees, which add to the beauty and charm of the place, the Khatts Springs is also home to almost 170 archeological sites and many tombs.
