“A lone mountian in the desert”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

The mountain itself is just a mountain ,however the hotel on the mountain top is unreal. Had I not been there I would not have believed it. The places to rest and have something to drink are numerous and very well kept.

“Stunning!”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

If you are in Al Ain you should really take the trip and see the views from the mountain. Really worth it! go on a clear day though...

“Amazing drive”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

THe drive up the mountain to Jabal Hafeet from the Green Mubazzara is regarded as among the best in the world. Its beautifully done. The mountains are really different... The view from jabal hafeet is amazing. There are different viewing spots all along the 15 km drive. You can stop and picnic anywhere you like. You can see the oasis of Green Mubazzara from the top as well.. The hot springs can be seen as well.
If you are in Al-Ain, and do not see this...... You missed something great.

“Its the highest point in the area”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

I have visited Jabal Hafeet a couple of times and loved it. The road for the drive up is very safe and nice. The view from the top is breathtaking. There are a few scenic areas that you can pull over to take some pictures also. The view in the night time is also amazing.

“Been visiting since I was a kid.”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

This is the highest accessible peak in the UAE. Dont go here during public holidays, it is a manfest in the making.

But during other days/weekends, this place is really serene and nice. Make sure you take extra clothes during the winter, because it is FREEZING and super windy.

If you are planning to do a BBQ here, I suggest you dont, since the wind will not let you do your thing.

You can climb up higher up the mountain if you wish, just jump the gates, no one ever says a thing. Although if you fall, no one will know either.

The best part is the drive up and down, rated as one of the best mountain drives in the world, occasionally, you will see the wild drivers doing their wild thing. Stay safe, and drive safe, because any error and death is a big possibility.
