Hatta Mountain Safari! A Real Adventure
This half-day tour takes us to the 200 year old village of Hatta - which is located in the rough Hajar Mountains. After an early departure by 4X4 vehicles, we proceed along the road until we reach the mountains. There you will have an adventurous drive through the rocky landscape. An hour or so of rough driving can be rewarded by scenes of great and unexpected beauty as we pass big and small Wadis and we cross lush landscape, which is surrounding the small settlements and villages deep in the mountains. We will explore the Wadis and dry river beds, which are flooded after winter rains from the Hajar Mountains. A swim in one of those Wadis will give you a nice refreshment in the winter month. Later you can take a visit to the restored 16th century Hatta Fort, before your lunch. On the way back to Dubai we stop at one of those popular street markets, where you can find local carpets and potteries.
