The Mountain of Smoke (Arabic: جبل الدخان‎, Jabal al Dukhan) is a hill in the Southern Governorate of Bahrain. At 134 m (440 ft) above mean sea level, it is the country's highest point. The Mountain of Smoke is named as such because of the haze which often surrounds it on humid days. A number of caves of indeterminate type are in the vicinity of the mountain.[2]

Flint dating to the Stone Age have been found on and around the hill.[3]
