PARK AT THE HILL

Nowadays, spending whole day in the outdoor park is not the sweetest things to do as the steamy weather increase from time to time. Instead, it will give you a fair share of sweat-ish exposure. Before the humidity comes in full swing, we got a chance to visit one of the less-visited park in UAE. Hatta Hill Park is a place not fully discover by many due to its distant to residential and commercial hubs. I have no idea if it was accessible by public transportation since it was located in between border of Dubai and Hatta.

I went there via private car with my Dxb Family. It took almost 1 and half hour to reach our destination and had twice check point before crossing the UAE-Oman border. So make sure to bring your passport or emirates id for no-hassle entry.

We saw a landscape of desert on our way to the park. The sand dune is indeed a good spot to take picture.

The formation of rocky hill lead us closer to Hatta Hill Park. Though most of the time rocks covered both side of the road it never become an excuse to plant some Date Trees and grass to achieve an environmental balance.

The place remain unexplored by local, expats and tourists. It is with privilege that aside from Security Guard our group temporarily “owned” the park for some hours. We are the only group who went there for a sight-seeing.

From the name itself, Hatta Hill Park was build at the top of the hill. While most of the park in Dubai are seen in a normal plain land area this one is formed in a unique style stapled along the cliff.

A series of step will give you chance to see the broader downside area in a different prospective. Some station have small but spacious cottage that provides a resting avenue for those who came. The range of Hajar mountain serve as a pretty background for picture taking activity. Every step to reach the top make us more excited.

The watchtower which built a long time ago welcome our arrival and at the same time show us a bit of history. If we were amazed to see the surrounding as we move forward standing inside the tower give us perfect opportunity to overlook the entire place.

It’s visually obvious how the emirates of Dubai became a tourist destination. From the main city where famous and iconic landmark was located they also have a hidden treasure even in their border between UAE and Oman.
