After roughly two hours, arrive in Hajar and stop to explore its 16th-century highlight: Hajar Heritage Village. With your guide, walk around the villages mosques, watchtowers and houses while hearing how such buildings were made from materials such as mud, reed and stone. See Hatta Fort, and learn about daily village life for the Hatta people many centuries ago.
