Altitude Training, Oman
12-days / 11-nights | Jabal Akhdar
MTN FIT™ Altitude Training Overview
We know time is your most precious resource, so we’ve built MTN FIT™ Altitude Training – a completely unique 12-day performance training program conducted at high altitude for unprecedented results. Our high-octane adventure is staged at the award-winning Alila Jabal Akhdar at 2000m amongst the Al Hajar mountains, the highest point in the Arabian peninsula.
Training and sleeping at altitude is well-documented to dramatically enhance both training and recovery. Our MTN FIT™ Altitude Training program allows you to realise your physical potential by delivering optimal physical conditioning, boosting your natural EPO (Erythropoietin) production and increasing your VO2 max.
Our team of internationally certified professionals have a long history of delivering outdoor experiences in the Himalayas. We accept just 8 guests per altitude training program to keep your experience private and customised.

You’ll enjoy the finest international cuisine at Alila’s award-winning restaurants, with organic supplements and snacks to keep your energy levels high. There are endless options for unwinding after training, whether it’s an outdoor yoga session, luxurious treatments at the spa, or indulgent cocktails at sunset.
To experience Oman’s stunning natural environment, try the famous Via Ferrata trek, go rock-climbing in caves or swim in fresh water oasis. Immerse yourself in Omani culture by learning to cook a traditional barbecue, visiting the Nizwa Souk and taking in an oud musical performance.

Welcome to Muscat, Oman’s capital! Arrive at the Muscat International Airport (MCT). Our 5* transfers will be waiting for you at the airport, upon your exit look out for the K-Line Logo that will be displayed by your driver.
Perched at 2,000m above sea level, the airport transfer to Alila Jabal Akhdar Resort takes approximately 2.5 hours. Your journey will take you from the capital city into the heart of the Al Hajar Mountain Range in Oman’s interior.
