Nizwa/Jebel Shams – Grand Canyon

Enjoy the great day out driving through Nizwa Fort, built in the 17th century, and its Souq renowned for its Friday cattle auction. Your tour continues to head up to Jebel Shams, ‘Sun Mountain’-Oman’s highest peak nearly 3000 meters. At the upper reaches of the mountain is the ‘Grand Canyon’, which gives breath taking views down to its floor.

(Optional : You can add Al Hoota Caves where one gets a chance to view stalactites and stalagmites as well as an underground lake home to a rare species of blind fish)
