|GPS at peak|
- [Check height] Height is 1340 meters or 1,249 meters, on the border with Oman.
- Three or four lane tarmac highway takes you almost to the top, 13 km distance. Many places on the way up to stop, park, look at the view, take photos.
- Road was built in the 1980s at a cost of about AED 180 million. Road is rated as one of the best roads in the world to drive.
- Large car park area at end of road with cheap but unpleasant cafes and restaurants.
- Temperature at top is a few degrees cooler than at sea-level. Even in mid summer it's possible to sit relatively comfortably outside.
- Hotel Mercure near the top often has special room rates in the summer months. All the usual facilities and 5 stars.
- Restaurant at the top of the mountain is aptly named 'Top of the Mountain Restaurant'. Don't expect Gordon Ramsey to be cooking.
