The drive up to the top of Jabal Hafeet was a nice experience. There are spots along the way for the views and taking photos. There is a restaurant at the top. On one side of the overlook, is Oman, and the other side is Al Ain. We went during the heat of August, so the haze and dust made... More

I would definitely recommend you to Jabal Hafeet if you still have doubt in a period of time that the earth is inundated by the sea. The mountain is a living legacy of the past era. I was amazed to be confronted by a living throbing gargantuan coral. An eye opener must see destination in UAE. It is free to... More

The location and accessibility to reach the mountain is lovely. The view from top is 2 ways one side looking towards the Al Ain city and the other towards Buriami Oman side. There is a cafeteria on top where your can take tea and walk around and enjoy the views. Its favorite with locals for weekend drives

It's a long drive to reach this place but the scenery along the way was very interesting - sand dunes, camels, etc... The drive up was definitely something I love about the trip. The views were amazing, especially from the top. It was a bit hazy though during this time. But I imagine it's way better during the cooler months.

Located at Al Ain, this is the highest mountain peak of UAE. Its a nice drive. Long winding roads. The views are awesome. Spent time at the peak with beautiful views. There are designated parking places on the way. There is a restaurant on top which was closed. Best to carry snacks along. Early morning is the best time to... More

We rented a car and did this as a road trip from Dubai. Was great ! Really enjoyed the scenic climb up the mountain and spent some time at the peak enjoying the view and the weather.
