A must if vsiting near Al Ain

The winding road brings beautiful sights at every turn. The view is for miles and into Oman as well which is widely desert and barren.

Come and challenge your driving skills ascending and descending this mountain road. Wonderfully built and offering scenic views, this road gains a lot of elevation in a short distance, provides twisties, sweepers, and numerous pull outs to stop and appreciate the views of the mountain and surrounding desert.

Myself and a friend drove our hire car to Al Ain from Dubai. There are several petrol stations on the road between Dubai and Al Ain (Abu Dhabi). Pros: -Jebel Hafeet signposted from 'Town Centre' in Al Ain. White on brown signs like in England. -Windy, immaculately tarmaced road up and down the mountain. Two lanes going up, one lane... More

A breath taking experience. The mountains are fascinating though a little bit scary imagining how steep it is. Better to go here during winter than summer or else you'll be like a barbecue on a grill. Sounds coming from the top of Jabel Hafeet is kinda mysterious, like a whale screaming for help. All in all, it is an amazing... More

Jabal Hafeet in al ain is worth for the drive to the top. It is nice place with parking space and Childrens swings. You will get a good view from the top. It is better to go at sunset or sunrise.

I have been lucky to visit this location on two separate occasions now, each time bringing something new to the experience as they have been at different times of the years thus the weather has been different each time. It is a bit of a car ride from the main city of Al Ain, and not always best signposted, though... More

You can drive to the top via a winding highway to be rewarded with magnificent views over Al Ain at the top of Jebel Hafeet. Stunning view along the way of the deep canyons.
