This looks epic…

If heading to Hatta wasn’t already on our 2019 bucket list, it is now.

The heritage site, found in the mountains about an hour from Dubai, is the chosen staycation spot for H.H Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum this week.

As well as posting pictures of himself hiking and kayaking, he’s also been camping on the banks of the Hatta Dam, sharing pictures of the stunning landscape by night to his Instagram stories.

“Away from the city” Sheikh Hamdan captioned this stunning shot of himself hiking towards the sunrise.
