The drive up to the top is nice but once on top there is not much to do. It is only a big car park with a nice view of Al Hajar mountains, there is not even a good place to setup a picnic. We always plan a stop at Mercure Grand Jebel Hafeet either for a meal or weekend... More

When you go to Al Ain, don't miss the Jabal Hafeet view. On a clear day the view is simply breath taking. The pic is at 1240m, on top there is a big headland place where you have an almost 360 deg view over the UAE and Oman. The raod climbing the mountain is in a very good condition so... More

Jabal Ḥafeeṫ is a mountain primarily in the United Arab Emirates on the outskirts of Al Ain in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. Part of the mountain straddles the border with Oman, while the summit is located wholly within United Arab Emirates.

On a clear day, offers a great view of the surroundings, in particular of the barren terrain. On the way up or down the mountain, stop at the Mercure hotel which offers a decent buffet and a nice pool. For 2 or 4 wheel enthusiasts, the winding roan up & down the mountain can offer a few thrills but is... More

The drive to the top is a must if visiting Al Ain. There are overlook parking areas along the way up each with a different view, you can see the city of Al Ain, into Oman and the beautiful Red Sand dunes in the west of the UAE. Stop at the hotel Mecure for lunch.

A good weekend drive location from Dubai or Abu Dhabi.The drive on the curved roads on this hillock is too good. Parking lots are provided in between to stop to have a look of breathtaking views of Al Ain and take some photos. Although the roads are of best quality, drive carefully esp. during night time.

Maybe it has good view comparable to all gulf countries except Oman. Try to plan your trip away from dusty days, it will block most of the horizon scenery. Temperature above is lower than the city, it is a good outdoor place at summer

It's not worth to visit from Dubai or Abu Dhabi after traveling 150 Kms! Travelling on winter time is preffered! (Nov to April ) riding a motorcycle is a nice experience ! Must go on early mornings or sun set time!!!
