Jebel Akhdhar



Translated from Arabic as ‘Green Mountain’, Jebel Akhdhar is part of the Al Hajar mountain range and is located about 150 km from Muscat. The winding roads are extremely steep and a 4WD is strictly recommended, even on the new black top road.

Jebel Akhdhar is famous for rose cultivation; the rose oil sourced from the sweetly scented pink flowers is used to create rose water, which is utilised as a fragrance, in culinary preparations and is also renowned for its medical properties. The traditional craft of making rose water is a fascinating process and has remained unchanged for centuries.

The steep terraces of Jebel Akhdhar are also famous for the production of exotic fruits and flowers such as pomegranates, juniper berries, peaches, figs and wild olives. The wadis below are ideal environments for producing crops such as walnuts.

The mountain is celebrated for its cooler climate, when compared to the rest of Oman, making it an ideal destination to explore in the hot summer months.
