Allow Memphis Tours to take you on a off-road experience to the Hajar Mountain Range. Climb to the peak of Jabal Akhdar and enjoy the beautiful scenery along the way.
Visit one of the most astonishing landscapes of northern Oman, Jebel Akdhar, the green Mountains. Explore the rural life of Oman and witness the beauty of Saiq plateau.
We start the tour from Muscat driving to the Saiq plateau in Jebel Akdhar. The drive from Muscat takes approximately two and a half hours to the top of the plateau and the temperatures year round can be anywhere from 10-20 degrees cooler than the lower elevations. In 2011, by royal decree the area was proclaimed a nature reserve and plans were formed for both protection and development of the area. Famous not only for its rose water, Jebel Akhdar boasts some of the largest terraced gardens in the country and is home to approximately one quarter of all flora in Oman including over 437 animal species! With such a broad spectrum of plant life, harvest season is nearly year round with something different in bloom every few months making this area attractive to tourists throughout the year.
Visit several small traditional villages and terraced farms. The diversity of crops they have is amazing, a few examples of what you will see are grapes, pomegranates, oranges, apples, dates, apricots, prickly pear, peaches, cherries and walnuts. Enjoy the stunning views of the valley and gardens below. Hike along the trail which is approximately 4km one way.
