Waterfalls, cable car over lake in Dubai soon: Sheikh Mohammed
A 5.4km cable car will take tourists over the Hatta Lake and through the mountains; while the waterfalls will flow through the upper dam in Hatta.
Waterfalls and a cable car are all set to come to Dubai.
His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, launched the two projects that will be executed by the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa).
>> Dubai Summit
The ‘Dubai Summit’ project includes the construction of a 5.4km cable car that will transport tourists from the Hatta Dam area to the top of Um Al Nesoor summit. At 1,300 metres above sea level, it will be the highest natural summit in Dubai.
The project is expected to be a major tourist attraction in the UAE. The cable car route passes over the Hatta Dam Lake and the Upper Dam Lake for the hydroelectric power station, as well as through mountains, ending at the summit of Um Al Nesoor mountain.

The project includes three main stops. The departure station will be built on an upper platform above the Hatta Dam and will be linked to the car parking area “using advanced means of transportation”.
The intermediate stop will have a viewing platform and facilities to serve tourists. The summit station will have a medium-sized hotel, a panoramic viewing platform, and facilities for tourists.
The project also includes hiking tracks and recreational facilities, “in addition to other world-class tourism services”.
>> Hatta Sustainable Waterfalls
This project will use the slope of the upper dam to create a natural waterfall. A waterway will be built along the parking area below the dam. The area will be developed to create recreational spaces, cafes and restaurants.
The water used in the waterfall will be collected at the end of the stream, recycled and pumped back to the top of the dam. Fishes bred in the stream will provide an additional attraction for family tourists.
