Create an itinerary including Jebel Akhdar
Take a drive up to Jebel Akhdar, a scenic part of the Al Hajar mountain range. The mountainous area doesn't appear green at first glance, surprising hikers exploring its higher parts with a labyrinth of dry riverbeds and terraces that harbor lush gardens and fruit orchards. You'll need a 4WD to get up to the plateau, but when you reach the verdant area surrounded by rocky cliffs, you can enjoy picturesque views of the terrace farms and tiny villages, known for their prized pomegranates, apples, roses, and other plants that thrive here.
