We will drive 3 hours to reach the Stone House hotel, and meet our guides. Then we will head down to do some exploring on a trail on this incrdibly beautifil mountain as we find some pools, caves, and cliffs.

We will take a circular aroute to explore abandoned villages for around 6 hours. This will be hilly, but not difficult terrain. On this two day trekking adventure in the cooler temps of Jabal Akdar, you will explore Oman’s mountains, abandoned villages, admire alpine flora and blooming pomegranate trees on our way across wadis, dams and plateaus.

Enjoy a cool evening in the wild, admire some of the most beautiful skies and cosy up in our sleeping bag for the night. Yes, the nights are still chilly up on Jabal Akhdar. Look out for lemons, papayas and even rare walnut trees on the second day of our trek.

It will be warm during the day and slightly chilly in the night. These are not challenging walks. They are meant to be a chance to explore the scenery and get a great day's hike in.
