Jebel Akhdar: Catch A Falling Star Photo Diary

We had the most wonderfully photogenic trip on Jebel Akhdar in August, and we were lucky to have three very talented photographers with us.  Each picture is watermarked with their name, ones without a name are mine (though you can probably guess that by the quality). Click on each picture for a larger image!  Huge thanks to Nikos, Robert and Rob for allowing me to share their photos.

Sunrises

the photos below are from our campsite; our guests could snap the sunrise from their tents!

Villages

We walked through Al Ayn, Saiq as well as the ruins of Wadi Bani Habib.  All quite easy hiking for 1-2 hours at a time.

Nature

Jebel Akhdar is known as Oman’s Green Mountain and you can easily see why.  Huge fruit terraces and orchards; ancient juniper and olive trees; lizards, birds and frogs; all these thrive at 2000-2400 metres above sea level!

Activities

We had a program of activities suitable for all the family; leisurely drives, easy hikes and non-stop photo opportunities!

Our Camp: We camped at the same place for 2 nights and our guests enjoyed a shaded majlis area, campfire area and buffet tent; we also provided showers and a camping loo too!  Camping equipment was available to hire.

Sunsets

We saw some cool sunsets too – the first night courtesy of the cloud formations and the second by driving to a viewpoint just 10 minutes from our camp!

Hope you can join us on our next trip – Fruits of The Fall – camping/activities/POMEGRANATE PICKING!
