Raw Nature II .. Safy Sahra - Jebal Akhdhar in Oman {by Bassam}

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The Jebel Akhdar, meaning The Green Mountain, is part of the Al Hajar Mountains range in Oman, which extends about 300 km inland from the Gulf of Oman coast. It is one of Oman’s most spectacular areas. The highest point, Jabal Shams (the mountain of the sun), is around 3,000 metres (around 9,800 feet) high. It is the highest point in Oman and the whole of eastern Arabia. It comprises the central section of the Al Hajar Mountains range, and is located around 150 km from Muscat.

The range is mostly desert, but at higher altitudes it receives around 300 mm of precipitation annually, moist enough to allow the growth of shrubs and trees and support agriculture. It is this that gives the mountains their 'green' name. Cool summers provide the visitor with fresh air surrounded by breathtaking stones.
