Jabel Akhdhar Village Walk
We offer a range of Hiking Tours at Jabal Akhdar, of which this is the one suitable for all ages and fitness levels. Ideal for beginners or those looking for a leisurely exploration of nature and the villages at this mountain range, the Jabal Akhdar Village Walk is an enjoyable tour for all to try. Though referred to in English as the slightly misleading Green Mountain, Jebel Akhdar is not a mountain as such, but rather to an area that encompasses the great Saiq Plateau.
The group is picked up from Birkat Al Mouz and driven up to Saih Qatenah, a plateau which is set at an altitude of 2000 m above sea level. On this tour, we will get an opportunity to explore numerous village and the natural wonders of Oman. Take in the great views offered by nature as you stroll through mountain trails crossing numerous villages, steep stairs hewn into the mountainside and across numerous Alfaj Irrigation systems which are part of the UNESCO World Heritage List. The village visits will help you develop a better understanding of the history, lives and workings of the Omani villages and their occupants; And exploring the trails builds a greater appreciation for the rich variety of landscapes and natural flora and fauna available in Oman.
We will make a stop for lunch at a nice picnic spot where you can take in the majestic beauty of nature at Jebel Akhdhar after which we will board a car that will take us onward to Wadi Bani Habib where we will continue the second leg of our village walk. We will visit numerous abandoned mountain villages here getting an opportunity to admire the ancient architecture and styles of construction that were used in olden times.
