The place itself is not very interesting... But the drive is good... With windows down and the cool air.. Thats all to it....theres not even a decent toilet atop the mountain... So folks with kids need to be prepared...

AT height about 1000 meters the place offers a panoramic view of the surrounding showing some greenery , some water and sand and excellent combination of all the three elements of the earth. It is easily approachable by road and worth a visit

One of the oldest tourist spots, the lights winding up the mountain is a beautiful sight from far away. Al Ain's Green Mubazzarah and the Jebel Hafeet are bond together, you can reach the mountain top by sunset, have a hot drink, spend a few minutes watching the lights of the city down coming up and then drive down to...

Great perspective from the summit and even more fun getting there. The mountain road is a driver's dream. On the downside, the are no opportunities for hiking or climbing.

Drive to the top is good and so is the view, over vast deserted land, but thats it. Weather turns very pleasant on top, If you have good company then certainly you will enjoy else its hill top with very few services.

I went there with friends on my motorcycle. The twisty road climbing the tall mountain is challenging, exciting and perfect for a motorcycle ride. The view is fantastic over the deserted region and also over the city. We could see an eagle fly very clearly in the sky in front and below us. A must see. It is not a... More

At the bottom are hot springs and everyone is bar b q-ing. The drive to the top takes like 15 minutes and it's winding and a tad bit dangerous if you are going too fast. But when you get to the top it's cool compared to how arid it is at the bottom. There's a small park area and a... More
