An ancient trading realm and a sheikdom, Hatta is nestled high up in the mountains of Al-Hajar. Here, you may unwind, get away from the buzzing city life, and watch the terrains wonderfully transform from Dubai’s pristine streets to the Al-Hajar’s rugged mountain passes and the desert’s soft-red dunes.

To make this foray more pleasurable, you may take a dip at any of the Hatta’s fresh natural water ponds. Your unforgettable expedition resumes with a sojourn to Jebel Maleihah, a rock region where you can find rocky outcrops of the desert as well as fossils of ocean life over a million years ago.
