Wadi Al Muaydin Hike

Hiking in Jebel Akhdar

Access to Jebel Akhdar is by mandatory 4WD. The only alternative is a 17km walking trail through the terraced villages of Wadi Al Muaydin to the Saiq Plateau. You’ll need a guide, and beware: it’s an unrelenting uphill slog. Thankfully, it is also a magical way to sense the eerie-like retreat of the villages that dangle around the mountain crescent.
