MOUNTAIN HIDDEN TREASURES

The track to Wadi Bani Awf is a stunning, exhilarating trip over the mountains. Deep in Oman's countryside are many villages that still retain their traditional charm. Perhaps the most appealing of these is Bilad Sayt, a tranquil mountain hamlet tucked away in the mountains. The road or should I say track is steep to go on the other side but worth the trip. Your next stop will be, Misfat Al Abreen, set in a stunning landscape above terraced plantations of date palms. This is a rare sight in Oman as most palms are grown on the plains. The ancient houses and ruined watchtower perched on the mountain complete the scene. Continue your journey to the top of Jebel Shams, “Sun Mountain”, Oman’s highest peak, 3009 m. The cooler temperatures will surprise as you reach the top to get a spectacular view of the “Grand Canyon”.
