The Green Mountain "Jebel Akdar" is a fantastic and historical place to be visit in Libya, it is virgin area, the area has not been developed, difficult to find nice restaurants and prepared beaches because of policy of the regime during Ghadafi, however, I do not advice anyone to visit Libya nowadays due to security reasons.
