Know More about this tour

You will be picked up for your small, private tour in a 4WD vehicle. Visit the Nizwa souq, or open-air market, and Nizwa fort, which was strategically built above an underground stream atop a hill overlooking the ancient villages. With its colorful domes and bustling market below, it is the most visited national monument in Oman. Here you can see the ancient rock carvings and paintings which are said to be more than 2,000 years old. There is also a pre-historic hut on site.

Next, it's on to Jebel Shams, the highest peak in the over 430 mile (700 km) long Hajar mountain range. You might even be pleasantly surprised to see a few shepherds accompanying their grazing sheep. Experience an untamed and rugged countryside, a pristine world interrupted here and there by tiny settlements.

Return to Muscat via Birkat al Mauz, the deserted village of clay.
