Whether it’s gentle strolls out from the mountain hotels to enjoy the scenery or a more serious and dizzying hike deep into the mountains, there is plenty of walking to be had in the Jebel Akhdar region. There are marked trails in many places, but for the more serious hikes a guide may be needed. Perhaps the most famous hike is the Jebel Shams/Wadi Ghul rim walk. The path clings, seemingly impossibly, to the sheer slope immediately under the rim of the canyon, and wends its way round to what must have been the most inaccessible village in Arabia before it was abandoned: the only access was either via this six-hour round walk, or a rope slung over the canyon side!
