stone-built homes and shelters are maintained in a habitable state in
the hills outside Ras al-Khaimah city. A traditional route through the
Hajar mountains to the east coast, Wadi Bih joins up with Wadi Khabb Shamsi
allowing motorised transport to pass close to seasonally inhabited homes
and villages, along with their now largely abandoned cultivated terraces
high in the hills.
