The beauty of UAE is truly beyond words – it’s a real treasure box of beautiful locations and subtle cultural differences! A place you should not miss when in UAE is Hatta. Hatta is a little away from the busy life of Dubai. It’s a sure and peaceful escape from the hectic and boring everyday life. Surrounded by the huge mountains and natural pools of clear waters, Hatta is a perfect spot for those who love the outdoors.
We pick you up from your hotel in Dubai or Sharjah at 7 am and Hatta is around 100 kilometers and an hour and half drive away from Dubai. Hatta tour is a package of fun-filled, adventurous mountain trip as we pass through the rich greenery to the uneven Hajar Mountains. We travel through an interesting set of landscapes - the road, the mountains and the desert- to finally watch the very attractive and beautiful sights and experiences that Hatta offers!
We first move on to Wadi Showka – it’s a river which will be filled with clear water during the rains. You can see only beautiful things in every direction when you are in Hatta. This peaceful river location is great place for taking photographs! The mountains, the calm waters, the clear blue sky – all will make an ideal combination for perfect photos and unforgettable memories!
After you enjoy the beautiful sights of the location and a great photo session, we move on to Hatta Heritage Village. Though Hatta is mostly known for its beautiful mountains and scenery, the main place to visit has great historic importance. The Hatta Heritage Village gives you an idea of the story of old Dubai – its history dating back to almost 3000 years. Here, as you walk through this heritage village, you can see how the forts, the castles and the houses looked like once upon a time. Most of the things used by the Emiratis of that time are recreated in the village. This restored Heritage Village has a tower used for defense, stone houses with palm-frond roofs and falaj, UAE’s traditional water system. Other exhibits include age-old artifacts, documents, traditional weapons, furniture and crockery. A visit to the simplicity of the olden times is a mind calming episode!
After this tour of history, we proceed to the well-known Hatta Dam. This is a wonderful spot in UAE, which should never be missed! The Hatta dam is located in the middle of the mountains and its clear blue-green water is an unforgettable sight. For those who love the freshness and soothing effects of nature, this dam is a’ must visit’ location. At the Hatta Reservoir Visitor Point, you get a clear view of the pools of stunning green water. The calmness of the turquoise waters will fill you with a renewed energy. This is also an ideal location for an unforgettable photo session!
Our next destination is Hatta Hill Park. With its eye-soothing, green hilly areas, both residents and tourists choose the park as a fantastic picnic spot. The park has a comfortable swimming pool, a jogging track, children's playground, wooden benches and stone walls. If interested, the park offers you to have a barbeque under a hut with thatched roof or you can go up the hill to have an awesome view. You can also choose the ‘Watch Tower’ that gives you a beautiful panoramic view of the Hajar mountain range and the village around.
After visiting all these unforgettable locations, it’s time to make our trip back to Dubai! On the way back to Dubai, you can see the Fossil Rock in the desert. It is a large natural rock formation and as the name says, is packed with marine fossils. The importance and the details of the Fossil Rock will be explained to the guests. It will be something worth seeing and hearing. This spot in the wildness and vastness of the desert is also a photo location, if you feel so!
Now, you will be dropped back to your hotel just in time for your lunch. Nothing stops here - Trawey has many more packages designed for you – all the year round!
