Jebel Hafeet   Notes
Summit height 1,340 m  
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.
  • Sheikh Zayed's palace at the foot of the mountain. Also some hot springs at base called Green Mubazzarah.
