Welcome to Machu Picchu of Arabia. Jabel Akhdar – The green mountain of Oman it’s a microclimate, where depending on the time of the year, you can pick roses, pomegranates or walnuts. Only a few hours drive away a completely different world awaits. Are you ready for the adventure?
Did you know that: In the mountains, due to the height difference, the temperature it’s 10-15 degrees less than in Dubai. How cool is that?
We leave Dubai on Thursday after work (you can also fly to Muscat) and come back on Saturday evening.
