Jabal Ḥafeeṫ

Is a mountain on the outskirts of Al Ain, eastern UAE.

Part of the mountain straddles the border with Oman, while the summit is located wholly within United Arab Emirates.

The mountain rises 1,249 metres (4,098 ft) and offers an impressive view over the city.

Jebel Hafeet was a well-known landmark throughout the area's history and is a contemporary tourist attraction. An extensive natural cave system winds through Jabal Hafeet.

At the foothills of Jabal Ḥafeeṫ lies the Green Mubazarrah, a well-developed tourist attraction. There, hot-water springs gush forth in little streams and form a lake. Swimming pools and jacuzzis are scattered all over the Green Mubazarrah.
Jabal Ḥafeeṫ is also home to a wide range of animals including bats, foxes, and snakes.

It is often incorrectly labelled UAE's highest mountain (as it is certainly the most well-known); this honor actually belongs to an unnamed ca 1,910 m knoll just across the border from Jabal Bil Ays, in Oman. Jabal Yibir is the UAE's highest named peak.
