Take a break from the cosmopolitan vibe of Muscat and journey to the "Green Mountain" of Jebel Akhdar in the Hajar Mountain Range. Get back to nature and soak up the serene surroundings of what is considered one of the most scenic areas in Oman.

Highlights

  • Encounter Omani villages spread across the Hajar Mountains
  • Explore the local markets, and see the traders haggling
  • Discover the 'Green Mountain' of Jebel Akhdar

Description

Benefit from pick-up at your hotel or the Port of Muscat, and then travel approximately 170 kilometers to Jebel Akhdar, one of the most fabulous landmarks of Oman. Known as 'Green Mountain' for the moisture at higher altitudes that supports agriculture and allows shrubs to grow, Jebel Akhdar is otherwise a desert of dramatic wilderness and extraordinary beauty. Admire the green terraced gardens surrounding the villages, and drive through the Sumail Gap, the rocky natural passage that divides the Eastern and Western Hajar Mountains. Follow in the footsteps of intrepid tradesmen as you pass the town of Izki and proceed to the Saiq Plateau, only accessible by donkey for hundreds of years. See the variety of fruits growing, such as pomegranates, apricots and lemons in season. Make use of the cool, dry climate to take a walk around Wadi Bani Habib, Shrejaya, Al Ain and Aqur. Return to Muscat and get dropped off at your hotel or the port.
