Rose terraces in the Jabal Akhdar mountains (web only)


| May 15, 2020

The Jabal Akhdar mountains rise up to 2,000 metres above sea level and are known for their terraced fruit orchards. Along some of these terraces roses are grown, filling the air with a sweet fragrance during full bloom (usually between March & April). The flowers provide a dramatic cascade of pink down the terraces. These are the roses that are handpicked and used for making Oman’s famous rose water.
