Jebal Shams - Al Hamra - Misfah Full Day Private Tour


You will proceed towards the Jebel Shams Mountain. We drive up the Mountain to the stunning Grand Canyon of Oman in 3000 m. You can spend the afternoon walking around this famous Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon offers spectacular views over the surrounding valleys and Wadis below.

Then we drive to Al Hamra, and into the old part of the village, to visit the old restored houses within the village. Then we move on towards Misfat Al Abriyeen. This picturesque village lies on a steep slope at the foot of Jebel Shams, a few kilometers from the village of Al Hamra and consists of old homes and narrow streets. It has a large Falaj system which supplies water for many orchards, date palms and vegetables. It is worth to spend at least 1 ½ hours walking around the village. There are marked footpaths through the village and surrounding area.

In the late afternoon we drive back to Muscat.

A Recent Review of this tour

Ali did a great job. He was very adaptable. Because I was having some physical issues, he changed the entire tour at the last minute to accommodate me. He is also knowledgeable about Oman and pleasant company. I highly recommend him.
