Many regard watching the sunset at the summit of Jebel Hafeet Mountain to be one of the most beautiful sights known to man. Experience this for yourself by traveling the scenic Jebel Hafeet Mountain Road in the late afternoon.

For incredible sunrise and sunset photos and majestic views of Abu Dhabi’s lush garden city of Al Ain, head to the top of Jebel Hafeet mountain.

It is the most noteworthy mountain peak in Abu Dhabi and the second most noteworthy in the UAE. Ascending to a level of 1.249 meters over the ground, this mountain is situated in the Tawam locale in Al Ain.

The Jebel Hafeet Mountain Road is about 11.7 kilometers long of blacktop stands in stark contrast to the barren, rocky terrain it cuts through, adding to the visual drama as you attack it.

The road climbs the mountain with several turns and twists. A total of 60 of them, which range from tight hairpins to fast sweepers.

There are two lanes in the upwards direction and one coming down, and there’s excellent sight lines of the road that lies ahead. This means it’s relatively safe to ascend at pace, but you need to bear in mind that it’s a public road, which means you must consider the safety of other road users – including cyclists who go there to train – above all else.

Driving on Jabal Hafeet road itself is fun. It is also one of the most challenging roads globally because of its steep gradient and hairpin turns.

The weather here is a lot cooler than in the rest of the country at all times. Even during the summer, when parts of Dubai will be sweltering above forty degrees, the temperature in Jebel Hafeet will be less than forty. That’s not a comfy temp, but a lot less than other parts of the UAE.

Winters are the best time to enjoy the beauty of Jebel Jafeet. During the winter, the temperature gets low. And the weather can be a bit hazy at times.
