An off-road tour with Rayna Tours’ ‘Hatta Mountain Safari’
would be an incredible way to explore the rugged landscape and experience the
picturesque desert scenery of Hatta, bounded by the magnificent Hajjar Mountains.
Setting off from Dubai in a 4x4 vehicle, this tour will take you along the
meandering mountain trails, leading to the Hatta Heritage Village.
The focal point of this village is an ancient fort, along
with an ancient mosque dating back to more than 200 years ago. You’ll further
come across a number of elegantly restored mud houses, monuments, and modest
buildings – all depicting the 16th century Emirati art and architecture.
Another highlight to check out is Hatta Dam, wherein water amassed from natural
mountain springs is used for irrigation and producing electricity. Moreover,
visit Hatta Hill Park, known for its refreshing mountain walkways and lush
green spaces perfect for picnics. You can relish a buffet lunch at Hatta Fort
Hotel for an extra charge.
The trip also covers a visit to the popular Pottery Market
Carpet Market, selling beautiful, intricately designed carpets. These markets
are most active on Fridays and Saturdays, and only a handful of shops can be
seen opened on other days. So if you’re looking for a scenic, adventurous trip
outside the bustles of Dubai, then this trip is just for you!
