UAE’s second highest peak can be reached in Al Ain by driving up Jebel Hafeet. This mountain that took its form from craggy limestone that have rised over millions of years now stands at 1,240 metres. Many fossils were discovered in the area, that would tell about the city’s ancient history.
At the foothills or Jebel Hafeet are over 500 ancient burial tombs that dates back 5,000 years.
One can visit Jebel Hafeet to see a sweeping view of Al Ain. Or yet, one with a stamina can cycle to top passing by the winding highway.
At the start of the road ascending to Jebel Hafeet is Green Mubazzarah, which is a major tourist attraction. Weekends see many families visiting it for picnics and park activities. It has children’s playground as well as small streams from hot springs where visitors usually dip their feet.
