Rose Garden of Jebel Akhdar

This 2-3-hour hike will allow you to immerse into the local atmosphere and lifestyle. The walk will take you through the cliff-hugging terraced farms and rose gardens with stunning views of a 2,000m canyon opening up on the side.

Be ready to work a bit as you climb up the terraces that local families use to grow produce, learn about ancient irrigation system used on the mountains and then explore the narrow streets of an old village at the end of the route. Our next stop is a local distillery where rose water is made using centuries’ old techniques.

During the blooming season (March-May) you also have a chance to witness the process as it happens. For the rest of the year, a local will give you a guided tour, explain the process and the importance of this process for the locals.

Enjoy lunch with a local family who herds goats on Jebel Akhdar, to experience true Omani hospitality.
