We spent two days in Jebel Akhdar. The pictures are from evening and sunrise. Spectacular views from anywhere you look. The temperature with breeze was very comfortable in May less than 23C. If you come stay few extra days visit Green Mountain in Oman

It was raining and flooding and the temperature dropped from 40°C to 15°C but I loved every bit of it! Although, I'd love to have a weather good enough to walk the villages too. But ok. Next time :) Make sure you have a 4WH car and just enjoy the ride. The road is great! Like a high-way almost. Everything... More

A 4wd is compulsory. But its an amazing place to visit. Especially if you want to get some respite from the heat as this place is cool. We didn't have a 4wd, so an Omani guide who was very polite took us for OMR 23. The views are stunningly beautiful. Its about 2200 metres above sea level. There are a... More

Had an awesome drive in the steep slopes n curves. The temperature was between 20 - 23 degrees while it was 44 degrees in nizwa. There are two Parks where we can do the camping and barbeque. Meanwhile children can play around in the park.

Very nice place,only 4x4,one of the amazing desert mountain in Oman. During my visit just started summer, 42 degree but windy. I went to a few village and watched the sunset. Fanstastic!!.. Going down is bit scary and there was a signage on escape lane (for emergency if the 4x4 brakes is not functioning!!)

I guess the title of my review sums it all. We like going to Jebel Akhdar and try to do it in different seasons for different experiences, I was there about two weeks back and it is the roses season. The drive to Jebel Akhdar is about only couple of hours from Muscat using the Nizwa road and exiting about... More

Nice setting and scenery, nice walks in a spectacular scenery. Do not expect the Grand Canyon (USA), but the beauty here is that you do not have to share the spot with thousands of other people, that you have to drive up there and do not find an infrastructure which gives you the feeling that you are in Disneyland.
