Full-day jeep-tour to the Hajjar Mountains and breathtaking, secluded mountain villages.
The trip begins with a visit (photo opportunity only) to the fertile Batinah valley and the majestic fortress of Nakhl – one of the best-known in Oman. After a short stop, continue your drive along the foot of the mountains and down a wadi (dry river bed) - Wadi Bani Auf.
Here, during storms, the rain merges into numerous waterfalls. There is the mysterious Snake Canyon, whose winding path is strongly reminiscent of a coiled snake. Climb gently up through the mountains and arrive at the peak-top village Bilad Seet – perhaps, the most picturesque of these places. Small, ancient houses in the village clinging to the mountain slope overlooking the emerald green palm oasis and fertile, agricultural ‘terraces’. Have a rest in one of the gorge’s numerous valleys.
Later, drive back on the mountain road, passing through another ravine - Wadi Sahtan - before exiting to the main road and returning to the Muscat hotel.
