(Price varies by group size)

What to Expect

We will take you in a 40-minute drive to the starting point at Aqbat Al Biyut. This unique hike leads along an 8.6 km long donkey trail with a breathtaking view of the valley landscape. We descend to one of the most beautiful villages in Oman. Masirat Al Jawamid is at the bottom of the valley. Immediately below are beautifully cultivated gardens. Our excursion ends at the upper part of the waterfall, where, in addition to the impressively terraced gardens, you can admire the 650 m higher hotel complex Alila Jabal Akhdar. A unique place to get some great photo shots before we go back.

Location: Al-Jabel Al-Akhder Mountain ( 2 1/2 From Muscat)
