What To Expect
We start in the morning, passing Wadi Fanjah en route to Birkat Al Mauz. Passing the Fort that used to guide the entrance to Jebel Akhdar, we proceed up the most impressive mountain of Oman.
Villages are scattered on the mountainside with picturesque houses built of stones from Jebel Akhdar. The area is well known for its diverse agriculture. Small terraces with fruit trees, cherry blossom, peach flowers, pomegranate, saffron, garlic and much more create an amazing palette of colors and scents throughout the year (depending on the season).
With temperatures being considerably lower than in other parts of Oman, the Saiq plateau is famed for its abundance of roses used for rose water and perfumes. Return to Muscat late afternoon via Birkat Al Mauz. Lunch is served in Jebel Akhdar Hotel with wonderful views of the mountains.
