Drive up the winding roads for a spectacular view of Al Ain and the desert! There is a delightful kiosk shop at the top for refreshments!

Very beautiful and breathtaking view from up above. There are many check points where you can park your car and take pictures. Better to visit on a clear sky day because if it is foggy or dusty, it's 10 times worse on top than on ground level. You get a see almost whole of Al Ain which is very beautiful.... More

Well worth making the trip from Al Ain which is only about 20 mins away. Good well paved road, which although twisty we would not regard as challenging as some reviews suggest. Large well maintained car park at the top and plenty of photo opportunity stopping places on route. Cafe at the top for snacks and drinks. Good view over... More

We were told that any trip to Al Ain is incomplete without a visit to Jabel Hafeet. True that A short drive from the city the authorities have maintained and provided amenities free of charge for one of the best places in the United Arab Emirates- hats off to them A short drive up the mountain which is packed with...

We drove up at night, what a beautiful smooth road! There are a lot of sharp corners though! When you get to the top I was so impressed to find the place so clean tidy! There is ample parking and a well kept view point. There is even a shop. The view itself is very beautiful and a nice place... More

The drive to the top of the Jabal Hafeet is a bit challenging, and the drive down probably even more so, but it is certainly worth it. The views are great and Jabal Hafeet is really impressive. There are two cafes at the top, and whilst they are really basic, you can get drinks and snacks at reasonable prices if... More

Nice wiew on whole Al Ain. Take rest in Merkure hotel beside a pool with some exotic drink while children get tired on water slides. Temperature is always lover for some degrees, but you can easily get sunburn

There is a first-class multi-lane road with lighting leading to the top. There is a seemingly luxury hotel close to the top, which we did not visit. At the very top there is a large empty car park and two shabby cafes with not-so-clean bathrooms. On a clear day the views must be excellent. Ours was not a clear day... More
