While glitzy skylines are an impressive view, the UAE has a number of natural hidden gems. Just an hour and a half’s drive from Dubai, Wadi Shees is a little slice of paradise, tucked away in the Hajar Mountains.

Lush, green, and fertile, this mountaintop oasis is home to some beautiful nature trails, complete with waterfalls and still ponds. Irrigation channels are swathed by fragrant date palms, while the nearby dam is peppered with picnic and barbeque areas.

Book your car rental through Hertz and explore this natural hidden gem.
