“Very impressive!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

If you have a 4WD, drive into Wadi Nakhul to the village An Nakhul. Take the walk from the plateau of Jabal Shams to tzhe abandoned village As Shab which allows a lot of great views into the "Grand Canyon of Oman".

“Amazing landscapes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

The landscape is amazing, and it is a great place to go trekking, from a few hours to several days.
If you go trekking only a few hours, don't go in the morning but in the afternoon, as the sunlight will be much better for observing the landscape and for taking pictures
A must do in Oman, in my opinion

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

One of the most spectacular sights in Oman. Great for hiking and enjoying the serene 'quietness'.
We saw some saloon cars get stuck on the way up due to how steep the roads are. Some parts of the road will definitely require a 4x4 as they don't have tarmac.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

No words or pictures can do justice to the place. The trekking trail is nice, although did not have the chance to complete it. A must do when one visits Oman

“Amazing Drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

The abandoned village on the left as you enter the canyon is great: there are pictures of camels chipped into the stones in the old roadway. The drive up the canyon is spectacular - even tiny fish in some of the water pools. Amazing!
