Jabal Akhdar Olive Harvest Festival

If you love olives, you NEED to go up the mountain!

A decade ago, local farmers in Oman decided to experiment with planting olive trees. Now Jabal Akhdar is celebrating the 'Olive Harvest Festival'.

The harvest is running throughout the month of September. 

Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort will be celebrating the olive festival between Sunday, 11th-17th September.  Guests of the resort will enjoy a full daily schedule of olive-inspired activities such as fun harvesting competitions, an olive souk, and cooking demonstrations showcasing the local olives. 

Whether are not you are planning to stay in the luxury resort or just visit Jabal Akhdar for a walk around the olive plantations, it is well worth a visit.
