Two are the highest summits of Hajar Mountains: Jebel Shams and Jebel Akhdar. In this daily excursion, a 4x4 car will bring you to Jebel Akhdar (the Green Mountain).
This mountain, along with its Sayq Plateau, is very famous in Oman for its farm where roses, pomegranates, and walnuts trees grow in terraces. The Sayq Plateau is also hosting traditional villages, discover their traditional mountains’ houses nestled in the fertile mountainside.
Only one road leads to the Plateau, and after your lunch, you will return at the bottom of the mountain where another almost abandoned village is hidden: Birkat al Mawz. A look inside the ruins will send you back in the past when the inhabitants of the village carried the dates on the donkeys’ back, through the narrow streets, crossing the falaj full of precious water.
After this last visit you will reach your hotel in Muscat.
