Jabal Akhdar

The road to the summit, “The Green Mountain” in Arabic, is asphalted. It’s a dual carriageway width and lit with street lights all the way up the thousands of feet. The road overlooks a dramatic gorge, surrounded by awe-inspiring views of the Al Hajar Mountains. At the summit there’s a luxury hotel called Alila Jabal Akhdar hotel. It’s a place where you can hear the silence.
