UAE: 8 trekkers rescued from deep valley

Police and local mountaineers rescued 8 trekkers stuck in a deep valley in Ras Al Khaimah.

Major General Ali Abdullah bin Alwan, Commander-in-Chief of Ras Al Khaimah Police, on Thursday, said his men at the Rams Police Station managed to rescue the trekkers stuck in the rough Sheha Valley. Local mountaineers and ambulance and civil defence teams were involved.

Maj-Gen bin Alwan called on trekkers to carry enough food and water and avoid rough mountainous areas which are hard to reach.

Climbers were advised to inform authorities before undertaking treks, and update them about their whereabouts and the number of climbers. Doing research to get information on local climbing sites would also be useful in ensuring a safe trek.
