Although the name Jebel Akhdar translates as Green Mountain, the location in the Al Hajar range in Oman actually refers to an area, as opposed to one peak. It encompasses a network of wadis and terraces that support the growth of a number of fruits, including pomegranates and apricots. The orchards and gardens make an interesting place to explore.

While the natural scenery is stunning, ancient villages built into the hillside are also fascinating to see. Visitors can stand on the edge of Wadi Ghul - Oman's answer to the Grand Canyon - and gaze down at the vertical drop of more than a kilometre.

Look carefully and it is possible to see an abandoned village halfway up the canyon wall, which was once home to a small community. A three-hour walk and a slim footpath provide access to the village for those who would like to take a closer look.
