Hidden Treasure by blackchallenge

The most striking features of Misfat al Abreyeen are the ancient houses perched on top of the mountains and the green island of date palms that run up the heights. The flourishing date palms on the mountain is a rare sight as in most other areas they grow on the plains. The falaj which runs through the village no doubt has ensured the sustenance of the date palms. For a first-timer to Misfat al Abreyeen, such a scenic landscape will be really out of this world. A tarmac road leads up to the mountain village thereby facilitating the movement of even small cars to the area. The easy road access has made the village a popular place in the Sultanate. The traditional houses standing on the mountain appear like a turban on the lively date palm plantation. People continue to live in these houses, some of which are built on large rocks. The availability of water to a great extent has ensured the continuance of the thriving village of Misfat al Abreyeen.
