The way to the top of the mountain is quite steep but the winding road is in perfect condition. Once you reach the top you are rewarded by some spectacular views. Nice spot for photos !

A trip out to visit the ancient villages and walk on the ‘Green Mountain’ is a must do. Find out about the Falaj irrigation system and the crops grown on the mountainside. Enjoy the breathtaking views.
