morning time visiting Old Muscat, Mutrah Souq, the National Museum, and Bait AlZubair museum. From 1 pm to 6 pm, sailing to explore the coast of Muscat, including having a stop in Bandar Al Khiran for private camping and grilling.
Leave the hotel at 830 am and head toward Nakhal to visit its unique and famous fort offering a panoramic view of thousands of palm trees in the wadi. Then a must visit to Waianae. Overlooking Wadi Mistal, Wakan is a beautifully terraced farming village, set 2,000 meters above sea level in the Hajar Mountains, offering hiking tracks and viewing platforms that make the most of the panoramic views of the wadi below. Finally, the trip will end in Wadi Bani Kharous to enjoy the beauty of the area and its traditional mountainous and wadi villages.
This is a half-day trip to Tiwi, Wadi Shab, Bamah sinkhole, and Fins beach.
Wadi Tiwi: It has numerous farms and plantations dotting the wadi and a stunning pool deep inside Mibam village. Wadi Tiwi, named after Tiwi village at the coast, is a truly beautiful wadi with the lush plantations giving it a different (certainly greener) feel than many other wadis.
Wadi Shab: The main attraction of the wadi is the waterfall in the cave, which you can reach after a roughly 40-minute hike and a swim in 2-3 pools.
Wadi Diqa is an extension of similar wadis in the Ash Sharqiyah Region. We will cross this wadi to enjoy the Omani mountains and their natural variations.
Bimah Sinkhole: If you are not familiar with the term sinkhole, you might be misled by the Arabic name of the place and the local legend, which says that the hole was formed due to a meteor falling in this spot. However, the Bimmah Sinkhole occurred naturally due to limestone erosion and the collapse of rocks forming what you see. The sinkhole is connected to the sea through an underground tunnel, which may explain the unique color of the water.
