Rose harvest season begins in Jabal Akhdar

Al Jabal Al Akhar: Rose harvest season has kicked off in the Wilayat of Al Jabal Al Akhdar, Governorate of A’Dakhiliyah. The green terraces at an altitude of more than 3,000 metres are covered with more than 5,000 rose trees on an area of 7 to 10 acres. The amount of rose water produced from those trees is estimated at 28,000 litres.

Ali Saif Al Shukaili, Assistant Director of Heritage and Tourism in Governorate of A’Dakhiliyah, said that the rose harvest season in Al Jabal Al Akhdar ushers in a state of tourism diversity and allows tourists to have a close look at traditional and modern methods of distilling rose water.

The season runs from the end of March and continues until mid-April every year. It is typically associated with the distillation of rose water, which serves as a key component of ornamental products, aromatics and sweets and Omani coffee, Al Shukeili added.

He pointed out that the ministry attaches great importance to encouraging investment in Al Jabal Al Akhdar, notably by attracting tourism projects like tourist resorts, hotels and guesthouses. Such projects augment the local community’s gains from the tourism movement activity, he observed.

Al Shukaili said that the Tourist Services Centre on Al Jabal Al Akhdar Road provides guidance about how best a tourist can benefit from the rose harvest season.
