Terraces of Al Sayq in Jebal Akhdar in Oman ....{by Bassam}

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

For centuries, they have been expanding these terraces along the slopes of this huge canyon in Jebal Akhdar, when green, the view is simply breathtaking, that is why when Princess Diana visited Oman back in 1986, they brought her here to view this. Since then, this spot was called Diana's view point.

Bassam That landscapes are pretty much impressive. I just try to imagine what a hard work it must be to keep that running - and even to create that.
