Lack of safety signs

Utilising the weekend off to explore unseen destination in the UAE, I visited the Jabal Al Jais mountain in the Ras Al Khaimah emirate. A beautiful place with excellent road facilities and directions.

However, I noticed one dangerous element in the top of the mountain that is accessible for visitors.

There are no protective railings or warning sign boards installed in the area.

I saw many people going closer to the edges and taking selfies in various poses, even jumping near the edge. This is alarming and an invitation for danger to happen.

Self restraint is a must to avoid dangerous situations, but a cautionary guidance from authorities will be a reminder and warning to those who venture into dangerous act.

This is one of the emerging tourist destinations and among the must visit site in the UAE and hope the relevant authorities will install necessary warning boards and protective rails to avoid danger. Safety First.
