We took a private tour to Jebel Shams via our hotel (Anantara). Breathtaking area. The drive was as beautiful as the destination. Stopped at a few little villages where primary industry is goat herding. We had a Chrystal clear day. Well worth the visit.

More or less straight route. Ask locals. There’s a village at he top from where the trek starts. Once you get up there, rest is easy to find. Take water and head cover. A hydration pack is ideal. No food water or restrooms... More
