From Muscat: Day Trip to Jebel Shams, Oman's Grand Canyon

1. From Muscat: Day Trip to Jebel Shams, Oman's Grand Canyon

Begin your tour with 8:00 AM pickup from your accommodation in Muscat, then head to Nizwa, the birthplace of Islam and former capital of the Sultanate of Oman. Once there, enjoy the rich history of Oman dating back to the 17th century in a city packed with forts, historical edifices, and date plantations. Gaze at elaborate khanjars, or hand-carved daggers, and masterfully-crafted silver jewelry in Round Tower Fort, one of the city’s most famous fortifications. Later, you will be directed to Jebel Shams. On the way there, make stops to capture the best pictures at Al Hamra, a 300-year-old town located close to a flourishing oasis, and Misfat Al Brein, a 13th-century village located at the border of the canyon. Stroll through the mountain roads to arrive at Jebel Shams and stare in awe at the majestic peaks of the range that extend almost 3000 meters (9840 feet) up toward the clouds. As the trip comes to an end, enjoy a ride back to Muscat passing through the fascinating Muscat embassy quarter. Stop outside the charming Sultan Qaboos Mosque and admire and take photos of the magnificently beautiful Islamic architecture. The tour concludes with drop-off back to your hotel in Muscat.

The Travel Guide Abdul was amazing. But the tour operators were very late and I couldn’t fulfill the enjoyment I truly deserved.
