If you’re itching to take a break from all the daily stress by immersing yourself in the beauty of nature, this new hiking trail in Egypt should be right up your alley.

With the help from the Ababdeh, a local Bedouin tribe, hikers at the resort town of El Gouna in Egypt are exploring the caves and mountains of Wadi Billi, a hidden trail near the Red Sea.

A Dutch hiker and the Ababdeh have created a hiking group called the Gouna Mountain Goats to help curious hikers discover Egypt’s natural scenery, Reuters reported. The Ababdeh originated in Saudi Arabia, and they have made the El Gouna oasis their home for over 40 years. About 90 Bedouins from the tribe now still here.

Travelling by vehicle to the mountain range, hikers can pick between an easier track through the valley and a more complex path known as the “Hobbit’s trail to Mordor”, according to the report. The trekking is no cake walk: the paths are tricky and usually require climbing to complete, and the hikers also need to be alert for fallen rocks and slippery sides.

Take a look at the pictures we have here:
