Back on Trek Hamdan Bin Mohammed Heritage Center  Launches Sixth Edition of Camel Trek

Dubai United Arab Emirates - November 17, 2019:    Hamdan Bin Mohammed Heritage Center has announced the date of the sixth edition of its annual ‘Camel Trek’. An early start this year, the trek is to depart on December 4, 2019, from Liwa, and across the bewildered sand dunes and desert landforms to reach to Dubai within a timeframe of around 14 days.  


Since its inception, the Camel Trek attracted adventure lovers from all walks of life, representing different countries and nationalities. From this event’s humble beginning, the way was paved for hundreds of willing participants. Only last year, the number of registrants exceeded 1000 people. With the launch of the sixth edition at Abu Dhabi International Hunting and Equestrian Exhibition 2019, held last October, the number of registrants exceeded 700 people. 
In the past years, the door was open for registrants to come and practice at the dedicated camel farm in Dubai, based on a schedule of timings. “Endurance, commitment and physical fitness, are key to selecting and shortlisting the trek’s participants, in addition to availing new opportunities to new joiners”, said Hind Bin Demaithan Al Qemzi, Director of Events at HHC.    


“We have shortlisted the most apt participants. They were from both genders and represented countries including UAE, France, Germany, Albania, UK, and we also have an Emirati woman for the first time on this annual trek”, assured Hind. 


Ready and set to depart from Liwa desert on December 4, the journey of endurance is about to sail across the desert sands on camel backs, to encounter new challenges and thrilling adventures. Safety and security measures are in place to ensure an anodyne journey.


The CEO of HHC, HE Abdullah Hamdan Bin Dalmook, will lead the trek. He has been a regular participant and the source of Emirati heritage, since the trek’s early editions.  


New Records


The last edition of the Camel Trek has set a new record. The trekkers managed to travel 700 kilometers on camel backs, travelling 70 kilometers for 10 hours per day. This is a hard to achieve record. 


“We call them desert knights, but they are normal individuals who had the audacity to face this challenge of resilience, patience and will. They all had one common denominator of living a past time experience and learn about our Emirati heritage”, concluded Hind.
