Jabal Hafeet, the second highest mountain of UAE located in the region of Tawam, border of the United Arab Emirates and Oman. An ideal place to visit during winter season due to its cold temperature and stark beauty. It’s my first time to experience mountain in UAE and it’s totally beyond my expectations!
In less than 3 hours drive from Abu Dhabi, we had reached the peak of Jebel Hafeet Mountain at around 5 in the afternoon. The best time to see the beautiful sunset and witness the night view of Al Ain. We went there during winter season and the temperature is extremely cold at the top. The twisty road and limestone formations were gorgeous. There are multiple stops along the way to take a look of amazing scenery from a different angles. They’ve put some tables and chairs at each stop for those who want to have a picnic, which is totally great. There is also a cafeteria at the mountain top but we’re not able to buy food or sit due to crowds but instead we just explored the place and took more photos of the breathtaking mountain top scenery. All in all, we had a fantastic and fun-filled adventure indeed!
There are many ways for travelers to experience Jebel Hafeet, one of the best is to book with tour operators, it will include sightseeing to different attractions in Al Ain. Best time to visit is from 4PM till evening to witness the stunning view of this mountain in different perspective.
