Best time to visit Jebel Jais

Jebel Jais is home to the longest zipline in the world and sees tourists from all over the world to give the world record-breaking attraction a go. As one of the most popular destinations in the Middle East, there are some things to keep in mind. 

The Jebel Jais sees the maximum number of visitors during the cooler months, including the Holiday Season, when the schools are out.

Peak season vs low season 

The peak season (November to February) will see a majority of visitors because of the cool climate which will be perfect for outdoor activities. There will be larger crowds, especially at the popular attractions like the Jais Sledder. Expect longer wait times and potentially higher prices for accommodation and tours.

The low season (March to October) is considerably hotter but sees fewer crowds. If you don’t mind the heat, and want to avoid the crowds and long queues, this is the perfect time to visit. However, ensure that you wear comfortable clothing, be prepared for the heat, and stay hydrated.

Weekdays vs. weekends

The weekdays are generally less crowded than weekends, especially during peak season. To make the most of your trip to the Jebel Jais mountain, you can visit as early as possible to escape the heat or align your activities with the sunset, an event many people visit the Jebel Jais for. 

During the weekends, you can expect larger crowds, particularly at popular attractions and restaurants. Consider making reservations in advance, especially for dining at 1484 by Puro.
