Ra's al Khaymah (also Ras al-Khaimah), colloquially known as RAK, is the most northern of the seven emirates of the United Arab Emirates, and borders the Omani exclave Musandam.
Ras Al Khaimah is commonly referred to as the adventure hub of the United Arab Emirates and the Arabian peninsula, with various activities such as the longest zip-line in the world, kayaking, water skiing, Go Karting, golfing, mountain climbing and multiple mountain hiking trails available in the emirate making the emirate a common destination for adventurists. Ras Al Khaimah offers a different experience than the other emirates due to its mountains and different landscape, as well as having a large number of ancient archaeological sites, forts, and buildings.
