Jabal Akhdar & Birkat Al Mouz
The name Jebel Akhdar means “green mountain,” but this scenic area is less of an individual mountain and more so the incredible limestone massif centered on the Saiq Plateau, 2,000 meters above sea level. The region falls in the northern section of the Hajar Mountains, with cooler temperatures and more rainfall than the rest of the country. These conditions are ideal for the growth of rich agriculture, shrubs and trees that are unique to the area. Peaches, pomegranates, apricots, walnuts, saffron and the roses that make the area’s famous rosewater all perfume the air here.
Due to conditions, this area was restricted to military use until recently. Now it’s possible to reach the top without a permit, though a 4×4 vehicle is required. You’ll be rewarded with the sight of massive drop-offs, ancient villages steeped into the mountainside and expansive views of the valley below.
