Hello, all thrill-seekers and adrenaline junkies… Looking for some extra dose of fun in UAE? Well, I’m here with something very special for you guys – sharing my experience with Jebel Jais Zipline: the record-breaking zipline of the world !!!
Located in the northernmost emirate of UAE and an hour drive from Dubai Airport, Ras Al Khaimah is beginning to transform into the adventure capital of the UAE with its splendidly located mountain Jebel Jais that borders onto Oman and is the highest mountain range in the Emirates. With 30 km of newly developed highways that have opened towards the peak of mount Jebel Jais, you will come across some of the world’s most scenic driving routes and viewing platforms.
And you know what…? Ras Al Khaimah tourist places are a nice escape from the scorching heat with temperatures around 10 degrees cooler than sea level!

But the cherry on top is the world’s longest zip line in Ras Al Khaimah, which I will discuss in detail in this blog post here. I hope you will enjoy my RAK Zipline guide, covering all the questions that might be floating in your minds like the booking details, ticket prices, what to expect and all that a tourist needs for an unforgettable adventure.
Zipline Ras Al Khaimah Booking – How To Book RAK Zipline Tickets Online?
Booking your tickets for Jebel Jais Zipline is fairly simple, only in a way if you are able to find a reliable tour operator for your adventure. Your tour agent can make or break the journey… And I’m very picky when it comes to booking my tours with an agency online.
For my Jebel Jais Zipline Experience, a classmate of mine, who had been to the zip line before, highly recommend me to book my Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Deals with CliftonTours.com… I was like “Are you sure, should I proceed forward with them?” and his reply was like “Yes, buddy believe me… these guys were the best, and you can check their ratings on Google as well!”
Thus taking my friend’s word for it, I step ahead and booked my Jebel Jais Zipline ticket. To my surprise, the tour agency offered me a 50% relax on Rak zipline Tickets and I couldn’t be happier than that – it was like a feeling beyond expectations!
The Zipline Ras Al Khaimah Booking was super easy and fast. All I had to do was select on the tour option, choose a date for my Jebel Jais Flight, choose my pickup/drop-off point, make my purchase, and finally had my verified tickets to the world’s longest zipline within a matter of minutes.
What Is The Jebel Jais Zipline Ticket Price? Here’s How Much It Costs… (Booking The Special Deals & Offers Online)
Well, my first concern about this tour was the pricing… And Yes, it might be the first question in your mind as well (especially if you are a tourist on a budget :p).
Whenever we come across an exotic adventure spot, and that too in the vicinity of Dubai which is known for its expensive nature, we usually push it for later because we realize it will break your bank. But surprisingly the RAK Zipline Adventure was absolute fair on pricing, just AED 350, which I think is extremely economical when compared to other adventure activities in the UAE and above all you are heading to the longest zipline in the world, AED 350 is a perfect fit for this journey.
