HH Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, on Tuesday morning, visited project sites and inspected the ongoing tourism projects in the Wadi Al Hilu and Al Ghail Dam in Kalba city.
He kicked off the tour with a visit to the Jabal Al Kitab rest-house project site. The inspection tour comes within the framework of Sheikh Sultan’s keenness to personally review the progress work of a number of projects that he had directed during his previous visits to the city.
Work is currently under way at the rest house, which is being constructed 950 m above sea level in Kalba and linked to the city through the Wadi Al-Hilu tunnel and the Sharjah-Kalba road. The project also includes in its upcoming stages 1,000 residential villas that were designed in line with the nature of the mountain site. It will also include a five-star tourist hotel with a capacity of 80 rooms, with distinctive services.
The Sharjah ruler was also briefed by about the project, which aims to connect five mountain peaks to each other through a set of roads and paths, contributing to provide a unique and distinctive experience to the public.
The project, being designed to preserve the nature of the mountain environment will be developed in several phases. HH Al Qasimi also inspected the progress work in the Al Hafiya rest house, which is located next to the new Al Hayar tunnel, which would include various service facilities such as a mosque, restaurants and public service buildings.
He later inspected the Al Ghail Dam resting project, which overlooks a natural water body. The project is divided into three sections, including the rest area, which consists of different services and facilities that serve the public’s needs, trailer parks, and the mountain hiking trail.
