  Stunning view of the Hajar Mountains, Oman
by victorwkf

The Hajar Mountains dominate northern Oman which stretches all the way to the Musandam Peninsula, gateway to the Persian Gulf. There mountains are very old, rugged, beautiful and go up to 3000 over metres above sea level. They are divided into the Western Hajar Mountains and Eastern Hajar Mountains. There are many beautiful villages among the mountains, as well as deep gorges, rivers, valleys etc. Two famous landmarks here are the Jebel Akhdar (green mountain) and Jebel Shams (mountain of the sun). More information & photos of the Hajar Mountains are at my VT Al Hajar Al Gharbi page which should be fully ready by early March 2005.
