Jebel Shams, Nizwa Reviews

  • This is the highest mountain in Oman. Weather here is pleasant all year round. Few beautiful trails will take you to ancient villages. The Nakur gorge is a natural marvel. Almost 1000m deep it has the best rugged views in Oman.

  • Very nice place to be in when the climatic conditions are harsh in capital region with temperatures ranging from 35 to 45 degrees.Winters will be more enjoyable with family and friends with its cold weather and picturesque view with high mountains

  • A very raw mountain, beautiful scenery from the top. Driving up the mountain is preferred on a 4X4 since a lot of way is unpaved road. Good place to do camping, but beware no public facilities of rest room or even a store or cafe, so bring your own things. There are couple of resorts up in the mountain

  • We love this mountain journey. Nothing available in this place. Best carry some eatable and sufficient water.

  • Oman’s highest mountain, Jebel Shams (Mountain of the Sun; 3009m), is best known not for its peak but for the view into the spectacularly deep Wadi Ghul lying alongside it. The straight-sided Wadi Ghul is known locally as the Grand Canyon of Arabia as it fissures abruptly between the flat canyon rims, exposing vertical cliffs of 1000m and more. Until recently, there was nothing between the nervous driver and a plunge into the abyss but now an iron railing at least indicates the most precipitous points along the track and a couple of rough car parks along the rim pick out some of the best viewpoints into the canyon.
