Al Ain: Jebel Hafeet Mountain

Blog #004 : A Trip to Jebel Hafeet

Jabal Hafeet  environs of the city of Al Ain in Eastern Arabia. Al-Ain is in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi,[3] on the United Arab Emirates‘ eastern border with Oman. Like Al Hajar Mountains, about 26 km (16 mi) long and 4–5 km (2.5–3.1 mi) wide, extending from north to south. The range is asymmetric, and in the eastern part is much steeper (25 to 40 degrees) than the western side. The mountain rises 1,249 m (4,098 ft), and offers a view over the city. Jebel Hafeet was a well-known landmark throughout the area’s history, and is a contemporary tourist attraction. An extensive natural cave system winds through Jabal Hafeet. It is the emirate’s highest peak and UAE’s second, shared between the United Arab Emirates and Oman.[1][2]

As I remember it’s was cold winter months when we went to on a road trip to Jebel Hafeet.It’s the best time to visit because it’s freezing cold up there so you can enjoy the place and feel the cold weather.So we left Dubai around 2am, its take 2-3 hours drive and we need to reach our destination before sunrise.We reach before 5am the temperature is around 9 degrees.OMG!!!! it was freezing cold….

TIP 101: Don’t forget to bring hot drinks on thermos to keep you warm.

Its my second time to visit. I’ve always love the place because its an escape from the busy life in Dubai.A great place for families and friends to relax and unwind.Toilet facilities are available and a good place to do BBQ & picnics.

After our photo ops were heading to Green Mubazarrah Park for brunch.

Travel Quotes:

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in you sail. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

—-Mark Twain
