Emiratis and expats to embark on 10-day Camel Trek expedition

posted on 22/01/2016: 1673 views



Emiratis and expatriates alike are all set to embark on a Camel Trek expedition, which is being organised and supervised by the Hamdan bin Mohammed Heritage Centre, HHC, alongside renowned UAE explorers Ahmed Al Qasimi and Mohammed Bin Taryam, on Friday.

The 10-day trip will offer all participants the chance to bond with their camels while unearthing some deep-rooted, inner qualities amid the dunes and dust in a technology-free environment.

Mohammed Bin Taryam, said, "The overall objective of this camel trek is to provide an unforgettable experience that also helps in the dissemination of our culture here in this country. There is a clear need for such an expedition as it takes participants back to the olden days, when our ancestors led a far more nomadic lifestyle and transported goods in an altogether different manner. At the HHC, we are striving to revive our heritage and history among the UAE community at large in order to come to the collective – and full – realisation that it is of fundamental importance to our present day and our future. It really promises to be great fun for all of the adventure enthusiasts on this trip."

Ibrahim Abdul Rahim, Director of Event Management at the HHC, commented, "We're proud to organise such a trip, which spreads knowledge among different nationalities of the traditional aspects of life that were experienced by our ancestors, and pleased to welcome all who have decided to join us on this fun and interesting journey. We hope to pass on our ancestors' experiences in transit to different nationalities, and, through the challenges and difficulties they will invariably face on this expedition, it will cultivate qualities displayed by our ancestors such as patience, wisdom and the power of concentration. We will do our utmost to prove all means of comfort to them and to provide them with all of the necessary facts and information to help pass on this experience to their families and friends in their native countries. A fun atmosphere prevailed at the end of the training period, which bodes well for a comfortable and successful trip for all participants."

It is expected that the participants will set off on the first leg of their daily journey at around 7:30 a.m. each day. They will then stop at 12 noon for roughly two hours prior to recommencing their onward voyage towards their camp for the night at 5:00 p.m. or so, sufficiently prior to sundown. They expect to traverse around 50km every day and thus complete a 500km expedition. – Emirates News Agency, WAM - http://www.wam.ae/en/news/general/1395290583506.html
