    DESCRIPTION

    DESCRIPTION

    Jabal Akhdar means "Green Mountain". The landscape is mostly desert but, at higher altitudes, it's moist enough to allow the growth of shrubs and trees and support agriculture. It is famous for its traditional rose water extraction and agricultural products. It is also a part of the large Al Hajar mountain range, which encompasses the Saiq Plateau, high mountain scenery and fertile orchards. Dramatic, sheer drops leading to excellent panoramic views. There are plentiful walking opportunities and several small villages dotted around the mountains which can be interesting to vist to get a taste of local Omani life.
