Jabal Al Jais, Ras Al Khaimah

(4.3/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Take a ride up Jabal Al Jais--at 1,934 m (6,316 ft) above sea level, the country's tallest mountain. On the way up, the winding road takes you between foothills and across rugged, rocky terrain boasting lots of interesting geological features. Pull over at one of the natural viewing areas and admire the impressive vistas that each twist and turn in the road provides. Rumor has it that the mountain will soon be getting the five-star treatment, with a hotel, cable car, golf course, and ski slope all planned, following the opening of the mountain road in 2015. Until then, it stands as an impressive natural landmark, with no facilities except for the road. Stock up with water and food before your journey, and drive carefully on the tortuous route. Put Jabal Al Jais into our Ras Al Khaimah tour planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
