On top of the world. Beautiful drive up the mountain even a saloon car can go with ease thanks to the roads. Breathtaking view at the top

“Excellent place for picnic and rest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

If you are interested in nature and want to enjoy greenery, do visit this area... amazing green at the foot of the mountains, there are two swimming pool buildings (men/women separately) of scalding hot salt waters, coming directly from the earth... great to release muscle tension and achy bones. The walk on the green mountain is also great, if the weather is on the cooler side (like now in December). Lots of fun to be had with family and kids... there are picnic areas and a couple of food places. Lots of birds chirping....

“Amazing Drive to the top”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

It is worth driving up to the highest point of Jabal Hafeet. It is 11 Kms ride. The road is excellent. We drove there after the sunset and the views of the Al Ain city from the top is fantastic. The road to the top is among the top 10 beautiful mountain roads in the world. There is a restaurant at the top which serves tea, coffee and different snacks. It is a worth visiting place with family with teens/kids and friends.

“Amazing views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

A beautiful mountain with amazing scenery from the top (as long as it isn’t too misty). Gets very busy at weekends, so the best time to go is during weekdays. The café at the top is a bit disappointing and the quality of food is substandard. The Indian tea though is worth a try as you look out over the desert and try to imagine what the mountain looked out over before the oil. Take a cardigan or jacket if you’re going up in the late afternoon or later. If you can get up there when it’s quiet it’s an inspiring experience.
