What You Can Expect

Private 4x4 Safari - The Mountain of the Sun

"Grand Canyon of Oman"

In Nizwa you will visit the famous 17th century fort and the souk with its excellent Bedouin jewelry. Continue to Misfah, a village seemingly hewn out of rock.

Your next stop will be in the picturesque Al Hamra, one of the last loam villages in Oman. From Al Hamra the path leads to Jebel Shams, the "Mountain of the Sun", from a height of nearly 9,843 feet (3,000 meters) you will have an outstanding view deep into the "Grand Canyon of Oman".

A stop for a picnic lunch will be made en-route.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2008

Our stay in Muscat was short, so we opted for a day trip, the private 4x4 Mountain of the Sun tour. This took in the town of Nizwa (Oman's former capital) and Jebel Shams ? Oman's very own Grand Canyon. This was definitely our best day in Oman. Ramadan restrictions obviously affected us, but the upside was that the roads and sights were very quiet. It gave us a real taste for the country, and a tiny indication of how much more there is to see. There's no getting away from the fact that any travelling in Oman involves a lot of time spent on the road. A comfortable vehicle definitely made all the difference to us, as did our extremely friendly and knowledgeable guide.
