Day 2: Ibra – Sinaw – Nizwa (B – L – D)
After a nice breakfast, leave the golden sand dunes behind you and after a stop in Ibra for a closer look at the old town of Ibra with mud houses as well as watchtowers proudly looking over villages from the top of the hills, head towards Sinaw, visit the local market. Sinaw is at the border of the desert and people are not used to seeing tourists taking pictures. We will ask you to be very respectful while in Sinaw, thank you.
Continue to Nizwa, which was once the capital of Oman, go through the traditional and craft Souk where you can buy some souvenirs before visiting the Fort of Nizwa with its large circular tower and imagine life inside the Fort in the 17th century. The breathtaking view from the tower will show you how big the plantation is.
Dinner in local restaurant.
Night at Nizwa Heritage Inn
Day 3: Bahla – Jebel Shams – Misfat Al Abreen (B – L)
After a nice breakfast start your journey to Bahla, a charming little town surrounded by an old 12 km long wall; visit the place where they make pottery and also the old fort of Bahla, one of the oldest in Oman. Your journey then continues to the top of Jebel Shams, “Sun Mountain”, Oman’s highest peak, 3009 m. The cooler temperatures will surprise you as you reach the top to get a spectacular view of the “Grand Canyon”. The stunning landscape will enchant you.
Head then towards Misfat Al Abreen, set in a stunning landscape above terraced plantations of date palms. This is a rare sight in Oman as most palms are grown on the plains. The ancient houses and ruined watchtower perched on the mountain complete the scene.
