The drive up to the mountain is very smooth and the views are beautiful. It got an average mark because it needs some upkeep. The tiles on the flooring need replaced and the playground equipment is old. There is a small shop where you can get water and snacks at the top.

One of the oldest picnic/tourist spots in the country. The travel upwards is really exhillariting. Once up, there are strong winds. Travel in the mornings to have a good view of Al Ain. Night travels are also fun - you can see some well lit private homes. Dont forget to soak your feet in the warm waters of the wadi... More

That said it really is worth the trip up for the amazing unspoilt views. We went on a week day around lunch time and had... More

The drive is always amazing on the curvy road , and colder on the mountian top compared to ground levels, however it is over crowded with people and parking is just limited on top which makes it not so interesting at times. Everyone is there on weekends so avoid going on weekends.

A must go during winters. Go on sunrise or sunset! If you can see both, nothing like it. Go with friends/family/partner - doesnt matter! Just enjoy the view!

After a twisty 40 minute drive we arrived at Jabal Hafeet. It offers wonderful views of Oman & Al Ain... There is alot of place to walk around and click pictures... On the flip side there are no facilities such as toilets, decent eateries etc... I can imagine the amount of business a McDonalds would do at this place.. There... More
