Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort has a new extreme rock wall climbing experience

The up-and-coming Middle Eastern destination of Oman has just become more appealing for adventurous and nature-loving souls. Spread across 200 metres of majestic cliffs, the Ultimate Jabal Activity Wall offers climbers the opportunity of a lifetime; from taking part in one of the most exciting and physically energising challenges to getting the opportunity of snapping impressive shots of the country’s beautiful nature, those who participate will surely be left with lasting memories. The new attraction was added by the Anantara Al Jabal Akhdar Resort, in an attempt to enhance its mountain climbing experiences.

The Ultimate Jabal Activity Wall provides visitors a new way to discover the country’s impressive Green Mountain and its expanse of craggy cliffs and limestone rock formations. Meaning “iron road” in Italian, the via ferrata offers an unsurpassed view of the vast valley from an exhilarating, and otherwise inaccessible angle, providing the perfect photo opportunities. This new climbing route is one of the highest in the region, and boasts two zip lines for adrenaline fans to rush into the air.

Although the experience was designed to be exhilarating, making sure visitors are safe was also one of the main aspects taken into consideration. The attraction was developed to the highest European safety standards. The path comprises a trail of strategically placed metal steps so that climbers can trace their way along the vertical rock face, before navigating jagged rock formations, ladders and vertical stairs.

The new course is also suitable for all kinds of travellers, from entry level to advanced. There are a series of escape routes allowing any uneasy climbers to quickly ascend back up to the mountaintop. Moreover, a team of certified instructors, trained by a highly experienced British mountain guide, are on hand to assist climbers as they attach themselves to the cables using a waist harness and a locked carabiner system, dispensing with the need to clip and unclip for extra safety.

The excursions for beginners cost from 40.00++ OMR per person, or 60.00++ OMR per couple. This includes a 120 minute session with expert guidance from two certified instructors. Meanwhile, more experienced climbers can book The Ultimate Jabal Activity Wall from 50.00++ OMR per person, or 80.00++ per couple. This includes a 90 minute via ferrata session with expert guidance from two certified instructors.

Oman’s Anantara Al Jabal Akhdar Resort looks to provide couples and families alike with a range of authentic mountain escapes and experiences. The more adventurous can join in on this amazing opportunity, whilst those looking for relaxation can stay comfortably within the resort’s lush facilities, including the world-acclaimed Anantara Spa which harnesses the essence of Arabia and boasts ancient hammam rituals.
