Jebel Hafeet, Al Ain #Road Trip #Exploring the Desert Mountains

Finally, desert road trip, Jebel Hafeet, a very awesome and popular road trip in the UAE which i have missed out. Was pretty caught up with the Hokkaido / Tokyo posting, holding up on the Osaka posting temporary to catch up on the UAE.

The drive up the mountain, Jebel Hafeet and the desert views  are exhilarating. One of my best experience in the UAE. A pretty unique one.

Enjoyed the drive all the way to the top. The view was lovely. Night view will also have its very own charm, having view of the city at night.

Love the views up here. There are numerous stop areas for tourist to stop, take a break and also witness the beautiful desert landscapes.

Hotel Mercure Grand, Jebel Hafeet
When you reached the top, there is a nice hotel called Hotel Mercure Grand. A nice place to take a break, have some meals, and also having a great scenery at its outdoor area. If you want, stay a night or two!

Heading Home
The Jebel Hafeet, is just outside of the city of Al Ain, at the border of UAE and Oman. One of Abu Dhabi's most popular natural attractions. About two hours drive from Dubai.

Beautiful sandstone mountains, with surrounding desert landscape. Well worth road trip. Next post, travelling within Dubai once more, the famous Miracle Garden.

the roads are in great condition because the country is dry. not much soft grounds due to rain.
