Visit a Rose Plantation
The rose terraces on Jebel Akhdar come into bloom during March and April, filling the air with a heady aroma and keeping the villagers busy 24-hours a day. However, it is possible to visit the distillery year-round.
Pure rosewater is a prized commodity. Many believe it to have medicinal purposes, and it is often poured on visitors' hands to welcome them. It is also used in cooking, such as in traditional Omani halwa; a sweet treat or desert popular in the Middle East.
