Description

Turn off the tarmacked road and venture into the rugged landscape of Wadi Al Abyadh. Your skilled driver navigates the uneven terrain of the river valley in a rugged 4x4. Enjoy the contrast of the green vegetation in a desert landscape, and spot ancient settlements perched on the cliffs.

Depart Muscat and head west, for an adventurous day-trip to one of Oman's most enchanting valleys. As you traverse rocky terrain and cross the valley streams, admire the green vegetation, a refreshing change in a country dominated by desert. Pink oleanders provide further color dimension and the fauna are just as vibrant—a variety of local birds keep you company throughout your travels.

While traversing the countryside, catch glimpses of the traditional houses perched on jagged cliff tops—testament to the locals' ability to survive in harsh environments. As you exit the gully arrive in Nakhl, and see the imposing fort sculpted into the natural rock. Now restored and home to artisan handicrafts, step inside and learn more about the cultural customs of the local people.
