Located in the heart of the Western Hajar mountains. Wekan is a village on the North side of Jebal Al Akhdar and specifically overlooking the greater bowl of Wadi Mistel. Nearly 1000 meter high, Wekan village along with its beautiful and lush plantations sits at the cliff edge with cool breeze year long. The hike takes you either from Wekan to Hadash or the opposite where you will walk total 14 km over 2 days and spend the night the at Al Jebal Al Akhdar plateau. In the summer, the temp at the top is nice and cool but in the winter it could get below 0 so be ready for some cold weather conditions. The views are spectacular and probably one of the best in Oman.

Depart Husaak center Muscat and drive to the ancient village sitting on a cliff in Wadi Bani Kharus. We like to call it the 350 village as it surrounded by cliff edges 350 degrees and only 10 degrees entrance. The hike to village can take between 15 to 40 minutes depend on your fitness level. The first night will be spent there under the stars after setting up basic camp and cooking dinner. Everyone is expected to help in carrying up the stuff and set up the camp/cook.
The team will wake up early around 6 AM or even before depend on the time of the year, a quick breakfast to be served and then will have two options, either go back the same way (Easy) or go through the Wadi which is a good fun (This option is time sensitive). Once the team is back to the cars, a drive to Wadi Mistel and decision will be made whether to start from Wekan or Hadash. If you start from Wekan, you will end in Hadash and vice versa. The hike on Friday is long and it will take forever until you reach the plateau (dependent on your fitness level).
Once you reach the top, you will set up camp again as a team and enjoy a good dinner. Be ready for some cold weather. The plateau is windy most of the time and that increases the chill factor.
Wake up and start decending down the mountain to the end point and from there u head back to Muscat. Expected time of arrival to Muscat between 2 and 4 PM.
