Hidden Arabian Tour – 3 Days Oman tour

 

DAY 01: Muscat-Nizwa-Jebel Shams

0800 hrs We stop at the pretty village of Birkat Al Mauz situated at the foothills of Jebel Akhdar (Green Mountains). Enjoy a walk through its oasis and dense date plantations. Then we depart for Jabrin, the finest of Oman’s castles built in the late 17th century became a seat of Omani learning. The castle displays the highest achievement in Omani ceiling painting & beautifully executed woodcarvings. Visit Misfah a pretty mountain village with stone dwellings still in existence. While heading for Jebel Shams stop at the terrace farming village of Wadi Ghul. Our next stop takes us to Wadi Nakher located in the depth of our deepest canyon. In the Jebel Akhdar range Jebel Shams the highest peak offers a spectacular view. Nizwa, capital of the interior, is the birthplace of Islam in the Sultanate of Oman. Nizwa Souq is renowned for its intricately hand-carved “Khanjars” (daggers) & ornamental silver jewellery. Return to Nizwa.

DAY 02: Nizwa-Wahiba Sands-Wadi Bani Khalid-Ras Al Jinz

Breakfast. 08.00 hrs We depart from Nizwa for Wahiba Sands, a vast mass of undulating red and White sea of sand and dunes rising up to 200 meters, which are host to a variety of flora and fauna. The ever-changing patterns of the dunes are a photographer’s delight. Visit a Bedouin house in this wilderness. In stark contrast to this is Wadi Bani Khalid. It comprises of small pretty villages embedded in the mountains. The Wadi has clear deep blue water. After a lunch in Wadi Bani Khalid you will travel to Ras Al Jinz Turtle Reserve.   Here you will have time to relax at the hotel.  Dinner will be served at 8:30 before leaving to see the turtles at around 9:00 pm.  While we are very successful in sighting turtles, there are no guarantees. After an exhilarating night on the beach you will return to your hotel.
