Oman promotes mountain tourism

In a bid to innovate on tourism themes, Oman is getting ready to welcome GCC with its naturally-blessed terrain. In this regard, the Ministry of Tourism is looking to promote the mountains – including luxury stays, hiking and exploring rural villages.

A few hours drive from Muscat – the Jebel Shams and Jebel Akhdar – are part of the Al Hajar Mountains range. Jebel Shams is the highest peak in the Arabian Peninsula and is a popular sightseeing and hiking area.

For luxury stays in the mountains, the Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort and Alila Jabal Akhdar and other hotels and resorts offer plush luxury with incredible canyon views. The cool climate makes the resort has the ideal location for GCC residents looking for special luxury short stays or to spend time on the hiking trails in Wadi Ghul.

“Oman is the preferred destination for people who wish to escape desert heat and skip beaches in summer months. The country’s mountains – Jebel Akhdar and Jebel Shams offers moderate temperatures in the mountains,” said Salim Al Mamari, director general of tourism promotion at the Ministry of Tourism.

Wadi Mastal in Wilayt Nakhal located 150 km from Muscat is another option for visitors looking to explore traditional Omani way of life. A viewing platform offers views of surrounding mountains. In addition to moderate hiking trails, visitors can experience rural Oman as the area is farmed by locals growing vegetables and exotic fruit trees.
