Driving all the way up the mountain was really worthed, the road to the top is newly paved, smooth, with 3 lanes “2 going up, 1 going down” .
There are couple of rest areas along the way equipped with toilets for both males and females.
The main parking area close to the peak is a bit expensive, 20 AED for an hour.
On the day we went there was an 8 degrees temperature difference between the bottom and the top of the mountain .
It was dusty and haze on the day we went so unfortunately we couldn’t observe the sun set. So I suggest to select a day when the visibility is good.
I would assume that this place would be even better if visited during winter and especially during rainy days.
RAK government has invested a lot in this project and eventually this investment will pay back. they have thought of everything, even the charcoal dispensers are available at the parking spots, so that guests can safely discard all the left over charcoal without harming the environment and the place.

For sure I will visit this place again during this coming winter

if you just want to wander but don't have enough penny to spend with, this is the place to be... Have a nature trip with the family and enjoy the amazing trip to the top of the highest mountain in UAE. the place is also perfect for camping, so you can also bring your tents with you and experience the super cool ambiance in the mount and witness the sunrise right to your face. the longest and fastest zipline is also located in this place but you have to book ahead and be ready to spend 600 DHS. generally, its all worth the trip! enjoy and have fun!

The mountains was a lovely last minute journey we decided to do, was highly recommended by family members.

Unfortunately the road is not fully made to the top as yet but u can drive as high as possible.

Safe new roads don't need a 4x4 much better if u have your own car take all the time u need :)

There is place to park cars and have a good look around and take in the exquisite views.

It's a lovely drive up and even better down.

I'd recommend going around half 4ish to get to the the top and enjoy the sunset whilst driving down.

Lots of places to park and take pics

The road to jebel jais is unassuming until you get to the top & then you look down & realise what an awesome piece of engineering this is Remote, peaceful & worth a trip. Even I was tempted by the zip wire - but didn’t try - maybe next time! Ignore the guide books - there are toilets & food kiosks - my coffee was good but have no idea about the food. Went with hotel driver not on organised tour which was much cheaper & perfect as kids attention span limited.
