A Trip to a Beautiful Mountain

Our first trip from Dubai, a long drive to Jebel Jais mountain in Ras Al Khaimah, UAE. Jebel Jais is a magnificent mountain, tallest in UAE, which is located on the border of Oman and UAE. It was nearly 176 km from Dubai and takes about 3 hours to reach there by car. We started early in the morning at 7:00 AM and reached at around 11 AM. Traveling with a 2yrs old toddler our speed was limited.  That was her second road trip and I was nervous if she gets irritated or cries on the way. As I was little prepared, I have packed all the essentials along with like food, diapers and extra dresses for her. But I was really pleased to see her enjoying the trip without being cranky. I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful child. On the way, we stopped for a coffee break. The view was amazing with uncluttered and smooth roads surrounded by spectacular rocky mountains.  Situated at the height of 1900 m from sea level,  it was cooler, calmer and relaxing atmosphere than the city and a great spot for a picnic, trekking, biking and long drives. But of course, need to be very careful while driving because the road has many twists and turns. It was a fantastic road trip and one of the most unique and amazing travel experiences. An awesome place to visit when you are in UAE, one can enjoy the beautiful scenery while driving, a best getaway for a weekend when you are in Dubai.
