We road tripped to Oman in a simple non-4x4 non-SUV car, and decided not to rent a car since we thought there's only car rentals in Muscat, which was off our route. So we had made our peace with not going up to Jabal Akhdar, although I was dying to see it. Turns out - 1) There actually is car... More

I was excepting so much from this trip, but either I went at a particularly barren time or my expectations were set too high. The roses and majestic scenery didn't really materialise and I was left wondering why people raved about the place?

The climb and descent are both enjoyable with the windows rolled down, allowing the fresh air to cool you down, while taking in the beautiful vista spread out beneath you.

Great experience 2000 meters above sea !! Not recommended for kids under 12 as there are no attractions or play grounds for them except small garden!! You should be ready to walk and discover new places in the mountain.. Be ready for the Rocky Wild mountain but with temperature of 23 in July .. While down the mountain it's 38.... More

All services are available at the top of mountain: place to stay overnight, fuel, restaurants, open land scape for camping, different walk ways that are officially proposed by tourism authority which take days is you like to try all. Hotels that are so amazing to stay... More

You will need a four-wheel-drive to get up the mountain (there is a police checkpoint at the base of the mountain) but once you do there are fabulous views and beautiful areas of green in the wadis. This area is famous for fruit and roses!
