The name Jabal Al Akhdhar means “green mountain,” but this is more an magnificent limestone massif than a mountain.  The name green mountain logically derives from an area moist enough to support vegetation, thus “green” in an otherwise barren environment. Jabal Al Akhdhar is part of the Al Hajar Mountains range of northern Oman. In 2011 Jabal Al Akhdhar was designated a nature reserve by the Sultan Qaboos.

Jabal Al Akhdhar is commonly been the principal climb of the annual the Tour of Oman which consists of 6 stages in February of each year. The climb is exceptionally challenging at 10% average grade over 14 kilometers.
