Hello,
This mountain is terrific to spend the whole day doing BBQ, sight seeing and check the city from above.
The weather is always better than the city.
There is a lot of places to eat, to sit, to make BBQ, toilets as well

Its no doubt a very well built mountain track made for driving pleasure. The track has various viewpoints over Al Ain city and surrounding areas but infortuately the Govt of Abu Dhabi hasn't done anything other than building the road to the top. There are absolutely no visitor facilities on the top except two local cheap standard cafes run privately. This could have been much better had there been good quality restaurants on the top. Access to Jebel Hafeet involves crossing thru whole of Al Ain which is a beautiful city but with countless round-abouts and speed limit of just 80Km... this make trip tiring if you're coming for Dubai. In the end after driving for about 170 Km you get only about 14 Km mountain track with max elevation no more than 900m. If you've lot to spend then Mercure Grand Hotel is the only quality sitting available.

What beautiful views from the top of the mountain. The drive up with the well maintained road is a pleasure. The facilities at the top is very basic and it is a good idea to take a picnic basket with you with some refreshments.

It is a pity that people are breaking off part of the fence - take a photo for a souvenir!

The Jabal Hafeet offers a bit of lush green surroundings in an otherwise brown desert. The road to the top has many scenic waysides to stop and enjoy the view.

Worth the drive, but try to go on a day other than a weekend.

On our way to the zoo in Al Ain we drove up to the top of Jebel Hafeet. The road winds many times and the drive takes a while, but road conditions are good and the bends in the road offer a variety of photo opportunities.

At the top there is a large car park and paved promenade with plenty of space to stretch your legs and enjoy the views over the UAE and Oman. The breeze at the top is very refreshing and makes a change from the furnace like conditions down below.

Café with soft drinks and a shaded terrace. Only point to note is that there are only portable toilets at the top, so better to go before you start the ascent if this will bother you.
