Dubai to have waterfall, cable car in Hatta


DUBAI – A 5.4km cable car will transport tourists over the Hatta Dam Lake while a waterfall will be created in the area as part of the Dubai Summit project.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, launched the project on Tuesday (January 12).

The cable car will be constructed from the Hatta Dam area to the top of Um Al Nesoor summit, considered the highest natural summit in Dubai at 1,300 metres above sea level.

The cable car will pass over the Hatta Dam Lake and the Upper Dam Lake, and through mountains until it reaches the summit of Um Al Nesoor mountain.

The cable car will have three main stops, starting with the departure station above Hatta Dam, a secondary viewing station, and finally a summit station with a hotel and viewing platform.

When completed, the Dubai Summit project is expected to become another tourist attraction in Dubai. ICA/Expat Media
