Looking for daytrip ideas? Gulf News reader Mubashshira Khilji suggests a visit to Shees Park in Khor Fakkan, Sharjah. She said: “The spectacular beauty of Shees Park is beyond words. The trip was a relaxing escape from my day-to-day routine and fast-paced life.”

The park contains a mountain walkway of three mountain terraces connected by stone stairs leading to the main viewing platform at a height of 30 meters from the main park level.

The park is located in Al Hajar mountains, the highest mountain range in eastern Arabian Gulf. The reader photographer who is a high school student described her view as “mind blowing”. The green-yellow colour of brittlebush with backdrop of brown mountains is such a colour palette inspiration.”

She took this picture when the sky was enveloped with clouds and there was a slight drizzle. Khilji said: “The brilliant beams of light extending from the clouds illuminated the mountains giving them a characteristic red-orange hue to them.”
