A drive to the top is worthwhile. The view on the way up is lovely and is even better from the top. A visit after dark has its own charm, as it offers a view of the city at night.

The drive to and the view from Jabel Hafeet are just exhilarating. It was one of the best experiences I have had in the United Arab Emirates.

This mountain drive is touted as "one of the best mountain roads in the world".After my trip to Ladakh, my expectations were very high and though it certainly has spectacular views, I guess the claim is a bit hyped. However if you are in that area, it is worth going on this drive- stop at the top and enjoy the... More

There is also a cafeteria at the top, but suggest have your food from city or carry with you as not many options here. Good... More

Mountain Jebel Hafeet is a once in a lifetime experience of a unique mountain range in the middle of the desert. The trip up the mountain on an excellent road, with magnificent views, also includes a wonderful Hotel and a view of the Sheik's house on one of the peaks of the mountain.

A truly amazing scene, both at foot of mountains, and from the top. Amid the flat desert and some rolling sand dunes, this Rocky outcrop rises. The drive to the top is both scenic and on a perfect 4 lane highway very easy. The views back towards Abu Dhabi and eastwards over Oman are impressive. Food and drink and be... More

Jabal Hafeet is 2 1/2 hours drive from Dubai. The drive is extremely scenic as there are mountains around. Roads are smooth and nice. There is a mountain top called "Jabal Hafeet" where you can spend an hour or so. But be reminded that during hot/warm season, that place is extremely hot to resist. There is a Al Ain Zoo... More

A beautiful mountain top in the garden city of Al Ain. The drive to the summit via winding roads and hairpin bends is exciting.Once you reach the top, the view of Al Ain city is awesome. Best time to visit is at sun-rise or sun-set.
