Contrary to popular thought, the UAE is not just a beautiful desert with modern cities rising from its sand. In fact, the UAE boasts a variety of terrains from beautiful blue coastlines to emerald-green oases to endless expanses of sand dunes to rugged-tall-imposing mountains. Stretching from the Musandam Peninsula in the North down to the city of Sur in east Oman is the Hajar Mountain range, which is shared by both countries, the UAE and Oman. On the west side of the border, in the emirate of Ras al-Khaimah, Jabal Jais is the highest peak in the UAE rising an impressive 1,892m (6,207 feet) above sea level! Piercing through the clouds, this peak is so high that during the winter months it often receives snow and features temperatures as low as a shivering -5 degrees Celsius!
