Must see · Mountain · Nature / Park
Take a drive up to Jebel Akhdar, a scenic part of the Al Hajar mountain range. The mountainous area doesn't appear green at first glance, surprising hikers exploring its higher parts with a labyrinth of dry riverbeds and terraces that harbor lush gardens and fruit orchards. You'll need a 4WD to get up to the plateau, but when you reach the verdant area surrounded by rocky cliffs, you can enjoy picturesque views of the terrace farms and tiny villages, known for their prized pomegranates, apples, roses, and other plants that thrive here.

  • The place is still under development. Couldn't reach the end point where Google maps was pointing to.
  • There are some interesting treks here, some of them passing a few abandoned villages. You are allowed to reach here only driving a 4WD car (there is a police check point at the base of the mountain that checks the cars).
