Visit a Rose Plantation

One interesting experience in the Jabal Akhdar region is to visit one of the Rose Plantation distilleries. The rosewater that they produce are unique to the area, and are a result of centuries-old traditions. The rose terrace bloom during March and April and keep the villages working 24-hours a day to produce the lucrative rose water which is said to have healing properties. It is also sometimes used in cooking, such as halwa which is a sweet dessert. We generally suggest seeing this in the village of Sayq before doing the Four Village Walk.
