Jabal Jais

Jabal Jais, Jabal al-Jays or Jabal Bil Ays is a mountain on the border between Oman and United Arab Emirates, with an elevation of 1,911 m (6,268 feet). The highest point of this mount is located on the Omani side, but a secondary hill (in the same mountain) west of this peak is considered the highest point of the United Arab Emirates, at 1,892 m (6,207 feet) above sea level.

Temperatures as low as -5 degrees Celsius have been measured at the top of the mountain in winter, with plans in place to build a hotel, cable car, paragliding launch ramp, golf course and ski slope following the opening of a road scaling the mountain from Ras Al-Khaimah.
