“Drive (4WD) round the back to see the tombs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

See a bit of history by visiting the tombs around the base of Jebel Hafeet. They've done some reconstruction but the ruins are more interesting. And the collapsed cave is great for acoustics :-). Lots of fossils nearby too.

“The roof of UAE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

We went for a drive up the mountain just before dawn.
One could feel it getting colder as you got to the top.
Once at the top one can appreciate the most panaramic views of Al Ain, the city lights and one can even see across the borders of Oman. Should you find yourself in Al Ain, I highly recommend you do this drive.

“An amazing place and well worth the trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

The drive to Hafeet was via the camel souk ( an interesting experience). I was amazaed that the waters in the streams were warm.
The temperature was just right and the night lighting was amazing.
Would love to have gone in the daylight and had more time
