Conquer the mountain
Published on April 6, 2015
Take a scenic ride to the top of Jebel Hafeet along one of the greatest roads in the world. Driving enthusiasts will enjoy the sheer pleasure of a smooth ride as the road around the mountain is a match to Italy’s famous Stelvio Pass. If you happen to own a sports car, you’ll get the very best of the experience to the peak of the mountain. Take in the serene views of breath-taking landscapes as you get higher and higher. To capture the beautiful sights in the horizon, you have several spots to park your car and appreciate the nature. It is a good idea to bring your camera to get shots of the authenticity of the views, and take photos with a splendid background. You can stop at your own locations or get to the viewing platforms that will open a great view of Al Ain at the foot of the mountain and everything around it. It is a great way to disconnect from the city rush and rekindle with nature. Once you reach the very top, relax and grab some snacks at the café – you will definitely have a great view to your meal. At the height of 915 meteres above ground, you can also enjoy a stay at the Mercure Grand Jebel Hafeet Hotel.
Rumoured to be UAE’s highest mountain, Jabeel Hafeet is actually not. However it is the most popular mountain destination in the country. Located on outskirts of Al Ain, Jabeel Hafeet is the 2nd highest mountain, leaving the honours of the first place to Jebel Jais in Ras Al Khaimah. Boasting stunning views, amazing nature, and even historical artefacts, Jebel Hafeet is definitely a place to visit! So don’t wait up!
