Al-Hajar Mountains Tours and Activities
The Al-Hajar mountains abound in natural wonders as well as some of Oman’s most important and fascinating historical sites. Its arid expanses are periodically punctuated by green oases which loom mirage-like before your eyes.
The remarkable town of Misfat Al-Abriyeen, with its cliff-hugging mud-brick houses and date terraces, is one of the favored destinations here. Nearby, the aptly-named Green Mountain (Jebal Akhdar) offers a respite from Oman’s treacherous summer heat. Its lush slopes abound with pomegranates and other fruit trees, as well as fields of roses used to make rose water.
Other recommended sites include the old capitals of Nizwa and Rustaq, the stunning Wadi Nakhr canyon and Samail, the birthplace of Islam in Oman which features numerous mosques and an imposing hill-top fort.
