Jebel Hafeet offers a nice vantage point to see Al Ain City below. This is the highest point of Al Ain and is a popular place to hang out and enjoy the cool climate. This was our next stop of our City Tour after exploring the hot springs of Green Mubazzarah.
Tip: Hafeet means “mountain”

We finished dipping our feet in hot water and it was time for a change of temperature by heading to the highest point of this green city.
Stopovers in Jebel Hafeet Mountains
Qismat drove us to the top of Jebel Hafeet. Along the way we had some short stopovers which are spots where you can also drop by to get a view of the city below. The road was smooth so the ride to the top was also comfortable. It’s nice how they paved the road for cars to drive easily.

Al Ain Photos of the Jebel Hafeet Road Below
Here are some photos of the road below from Jebel Hafeet. Good thing I brought my zoom lens. My Fujifilm XE1 has become a great buddy in capturing moments of these travel adventures in Dubai and beyond!

Photos of the Al Ain Town Proper – The Green City!
Once we reached the top, we had a good view of the city of Al Ain as well as the terrain surrounding. There’s the green area, around it are huge rock boulders, and there is also a an area full of sand. Very interesting view if you’re not used to seeing this combinations.

It’s so nice to see Al Ain City from the top. You will see the houses and cars so tiny below. There were plenty of people there taking time to enjoy a spot and admire the beauty of this city in Abu Dhabi.
We explored the area for a few more minutes and after taking a few more photos, we headed back down so we could have a lunch buffet.
