Sunsets from the mountains hill———-Jabalhafeet,Alain

Photography by Sofia Kashif
A limestonemarl mountain, Jebel Hafeet is about 26 km (16 mi) long and 4–5 km (2.5–3.1 mi) wide, extending from north to south. The range is asymmetric, and the eastern part is much steeper (25 to 40 degrees) than the western side. Dwarfed by Jabal Yibir and Jebel Jais of the Ru’us al-Jibal near Ras Al Khaimah in the north, both of which measure over 1,500 m (4,900 ft), the mountain rises 1,100–1,400 m (3,600–4,600 ft),and offers a view over Al-Ain. 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.


Sitting on the edge of the mountain’s hill and watching the melting sun setting in the far off depths of the west is an awe inspiring experience.It was an ecstatic,fantastic and spiritual experience to wash away all the worries,blues and burdens of the day. Anyone can lost himself with the farewell rays in the eternity.
