    WOW ! What a view from the top of the mountain. Some of the best switch backs i have seen climbing our way to the top. You see a lot of motorbikes and super cars making there way up just so they can enjoy the switch backs and rip around. The top of the mountain has a small restaurant where you can get snacks and tea. The best time to go would be later in the day and stay for the sunset. The sunset is beautiful and the drive down at night is magnificent since you get to see the entire town of Al Ain all lit up.

    It is a famous mountain in Al Ain with a beautiful road going up with multiple stop points to enjoy the view. At the very top you can take a break at Mercury Hotel for a drink or lunch. It is pretty crowded during weekends and doesn't offer climbing options at all. So if you are looking for authentic experience and mountain climbing , the drive will disappoint you. However great option for picnics for city crowd and kids friendly.

    Must visit place on al ain trip. Highest mountain view point in Al ain. Nicely made roads & viewpoints....try to avoid public holidays as you cannot enter top station due to traffic...

Where to stay in Al Ain

While Al Ain doesn't offer much in the way of true budget accommodations, many of its mid-range and luxury hotels are surprisingly good value. You'll find most hotels in the narrow streets of the old town, as well as some larger resorts around the fringes. Several of the city's hotels have swimming pools, which could provide welcome relief from the blistering heat. You can buy alcohol--heavily restricted throughout the U.A.E--at a few of the large hotels in Al Ain, including the Hilton and the Mercure Grand.
