Incredible views. The Omani Police have good reason to insist that people take on the mountain with a 4x4. This is less of a requirement for going up what has to be one of the most impressive bits of road / civil engineering that we've ever experienced, but more of a requirement for coming down. One truly needs to understand... More

Its a long journey from the city of Muscat and climbing the mountain is adventurous. A nice place to visit with your partner. Gets cold at night.

We drove up the winding roads of Jebel Akhdar to reach Anantara resort. Only 4 wheel drive vehicles are allowed by police to go up the hill. Some part of the road was quite steep. It's a pleasant 40 minute drive up to the top where the temperature drops by almost 10 degrees.

Rivaling the Grand Canyon, Jebel Akhdar is an amazing site. Its so majestic, yet quiet and calm at the same time. You can only be in awe of its wonder.

A wonderful place to trek. The plateau on top is beautiful with the village walk being an excellent quick stroll through some interesting villages and their plantations. The trek up Wadi Halfyn found in some trekking books is tough and should only be completed if you have the experience, water and support available. Wadi Bani Habib should not be missed!... More

The amazing 'moonscape' of the Hager Mountain range is breathtaking. We were shocked at the lack of barriers to huge gorges and chasms and wondered how many people had fallen over the years!

Before going up, I was rather apprehensive about the drive as I had no idea what to expect and had never driven anything apart from the boring roads of London Town. It was all in vain, the roads are very good and even a novice like myself managed it without much issue. The authorities have intentionally put up blockers around... More

About an hours drive from Niswa the roads are steep, full of hairpin bends but very well made (better than Switzerland!) and safe. Plenty of road side stopping points to admire the views. 4 x 4 is a must otherwise you can't get past the police check point! Self drive us not a problem as everything is well sign posted... More

Walking at altitude for those unused to it can be exhausting. I am now in my 60s and gamely volunteered to join my two youthful travelling companions on a walk at altitude that was scheduled to last three hours. What persuaded me was the walk would be truncated to just over 90 minutes and we would be picked up and... More
