Mirage in the Mountains Trail

Hiking in Jebel Akhdar

With a 200m rise involved, this 6.5km trail over rocky terrain requires a bit of fitness. It is worthwhile, however, for the close-up it affords of a wadi bottom and the vegetation that thrives in this semi-arid landscape. The trailhead is at Alila Jabal Akhdar Oman, where guides are available.
