The Jebel Ahdar Mountains rise to a height of 2000 meters above sea level and have their own climate, which is really unique for the Arabian Peninsula. It is a beautiful green island that adorns the Al Hajjar mountain range. Only in this place Oman grows juniper and rare medicinal herbs. The climate of this region is moderate – in summer the temperature does not rise above +30 C, and in winter it reaches -5C. The road to Jebel Akhdar passes through the city of Nizwa, in which the first stop is planned. Acquaintance with the ancient capital begins with visiting the eastern bazaar with its fruit, vegetable, fish galleries, famous for its antique courtyard and a specific market for the sale of pets. Special attention should be paid to the local fort known for its round tower of no traditional dimensions. On the way to Jebel Akhdar, we walk along Birkat al Maws with pleasure – an ancient mountain settlement of the early 17th century, drowning in plantations of banana, date palms, and other fruit trees. Then go to the side of Wadi Al Madin which serves as a passage to Jebel Akhdar. On the slopes of Jebel Ahdar, there are beautiful terraced orchards, the water from which comes from natural sources and Falajas. A wide selection of fruits such as peaches, apricots, figs, grapes, apples, pears, plums, almonds, walnuts – the fruits of local gardens. And in this region grows a special kind of garnets, famous for their excellent quality. Settlements Saik with its ancient dwellings near WadiBani Habit and Al Ain are impressive with their fantastic landscapes with miniature mountain lakes. They amaze the imagination of everyone who visited these tiny paradise islands near the highest peaks. And from March to April, the air of Jebel Ahdar is saturated with a pink scent because of their massive flowering. Since time immemorial, locals are engaged in the production of the world-famous rose water.
