As you ascend the wadi, you’ll encounter beautiful pools, perfect for a refreshing swim.

Next, visit Sur, a town renowned for its historical trading significance and its Dhow Building Yard. The picturesque sheltered lagoon, with Sur’s white houses and traditional dhows, offers a captivating view.

Continue your journey to Wahiba Sands, famous for its golden sand dunes. Experience the local culture by visiting a Bedouin family, and enjoy an exhilarating dune bashing adventure in a 4×4, riding up and down the dunes like a roller coaster. Savor the tranquility of the desert at the desert camp, and don’t miss the opportunity to watch the sunset over the dunes—a truly memorable experience.

While driving into the canyon is challenging, you can enjoy a short, easy trek. The area was once home to a village known for weaving, but it disappeared due to frequent floods.

The ancient houses and a ruined watchtower perched on the mountainside enhance the picturesque scene.

Continue on the breathtaking track to Wadi Bani Awf, offering an exhilarating mountain journey. Deep in Oman’s countryside, many villages retain their traditional charm and rural tranquility. One of the most enchanting is Bilad Sayt, a peaceful mountain hamlet nestled in the mountains. The steep track to the other side is challenging but rewarding.
