Discover the true essence of Arabia, when your four-wheel drive leaves the bustling city of Dubai, heading towards Hatta. While heading towards Hatta gaze at the monolith towering over the surrounding landscape and fossils embedded which dates back to more than 80 million years. The silhouette of the rugged mountain range invites drivers to an off-road adventure, Hatta Mountain Conservation through the steep passes. The journey takes you through a wild landscape of dramatic canyons, deep gorges filled with natural spring water and rocky valleys. The first stop is at Hatta Dam for 15 minutes. The drive ends in the village of Hatta where we visit the Heritage Village to visit the restored fort converted to a museum which provides fascinating historical information about the area. We then have lunch at the beautiful Hatta Fort Hotel, still overwhelmed and impressed by the incomparable landscape.
