This area is magnificent and the road to the top is very steep although a good surface a 4x4 vehicle is advisable. Be prepared...you might have to have a vehicle check at check-point before you commence the climb.

A 4X4 is a must with maximum 5 passenger. Road perfectly safe and smooth. The Jabel Akhdar consist of various villages. The fruits of Jabel are known and famous.

Amazing landscape. just at the foothills its barren land with stone mountains. as you start the ascend the landscape suddenly changes with loads of greenery around. A must visit and lots to do from day picnics to camping to hiking to village walks..wadi bani habib is icing on the cake.
