Jebel Akhdar Tour
Highlights / General details
You depart Muscat on a guided tour through the Sumail Gap and Izki by 4WD. Your journey continues on a scenic mountain route up to the roof of Oman, the Saiq Plateau which for hundreds of years has only been accessible by donkey. Jebel Akhdar, ‘Green Mountain’, as it is popularly dubbed, offers discovery, adventure and a fascinating insight into the life in one of the most inaccessible places in the Sultanate. From Princess Diana's Point, experience a sense of awe as you witness nature’s primordial beauty as seen in the soaring peaks and plunging canyons. The rise of terraces on extremely steep mountain slopes is particularly impressive. Feel the climate cool down by as much as 15 degrees on top of the mountain. Dining at a local restaurant is included before taking a leisurely walk through the hanging gardens which run parallel alongside the original falaj system. Next we take you down to the remote mountain village of Soqra, which would not look out of place on the front cover of ‘The National Geographic Magazine’.
