Jabal Ḥafeeṫ (Arabic: جبل حفيت, translit. Jabal Ḥafiṫ) (variously transscribed Jabal, Jabel and Jebal and Hafit or Hafeet – literally “empty mountain”) is a mountain located primarily in the environs of Al Ain, which itself is in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi in the UAE. Part of the mountain straddles the border with Oman, while the summit is located wholly within United Arab Emirates.
This is not my first time in Jebel Hafeet, which I believe is the most famous mountain in the UAE. It’s been 2 years since my first visit here with friends in 2014 (photo below on top of our trusty Rocky).
This second time is unplanned though, we went to Al Ain to collect our pasalubong from Pinas) and I just heard the mountain calling me (charooot!). Seriously, I felt the urge to visit the mountain again since it’s still early to head back to Dubai. So off we go.
Nothing has changed too much with Jebel Hafeet. The way to the top is still clean and maintained and the view on top is still awesome as ever.
It’s peaceful up there but it’s cold. It’s better in the mountain they said but we still need to work. So bye for now, who know’s well meet again. Here’s the sunset greeting us on our way down.
