All hail beautiful Hatta.

A ninety minute drive from Dubai, located in the Hajar Mountains, you should absolutely make plans to visit Hatta at least once - with a slightly cooler temperature, a visit feels like a genuine escape, like you've gone to a totally different country.

Walk, hike or bike the mountainous region, explore the heritage village or try any of the numerous new activities including downhill carting, a human sling shot, axe throwing, archery, freefall jumps and more. This is made for adventure lovers.

Here are just some of the reasons a visit to Hatta should be on your bucket list:

1. Hatta is committed to eco-tourism

The expansion by Meraas confirmed the region's dedication to eco-tourism by preserving the landscape. Visitors can simply take-in the incredible scenery, mountains, lakes, wadis, farms, Hatta dam and learn about the history of the area.

2. Sleeping over? Stay somewhere amazing

Images of the Hatta Sedr Trailers and Hatta Damani Lodges were shared everywhere as soon as it was announced they were coming to the UAE.

'Cos they're basic gram goals.

Promised as 'hotel standard,' they've got all the amenities you need from a hotel room. We have particular love for the air-stream type accommodation, made from repurposed trailers, each one comes with its own terrace and nearby viewing deck of the stunning Hajar mountains,
