High up on the border with Oman

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.

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

Nice spot, ample parking space, a cafeteria and swings for childern. View of al ain city from top is beautiful. At times its very windy. Can be veryyy cold in winters. The road that goes up is probably the best road in uae to enjoy a drive!!

The day we visited Jabal Hafeet was unfortunately not really clear so it was not possible to get the perfect view from the top. The road is just amazing. On the way to the top are many small parking spaces and a few restaurants. As you can see on the sign it is one of the best mountain roads in... More

A lovely visit and stay while visiting the UAE. It gives a new and alternative experience and one well worth having. The drive up the mountain is majestic and there are options for food, snack or a stay once at the top.

Went to the Jabal Hafeet mountain in Al Ain on the EId holiday break. In fact it was my 2nd visit to the place after the 1st visit long back in 2008. The zigzag road towards the top of the mountain is pretty cool with excellent visuals around and few observation points on the way. Since it was a public... More

Jebel Hafeet dominates the skyline of Al-Ain and features a Mercure Hotel a small shop and a Palace on the summit. The road has been there snaking up 12km to the 3,000ft summit for the last 30 odd years and tends to be a must do when visitors come to the city. It is also rated top ten by most... More
