Muscat, Oman7 contributions
As the name suggests, this is another exciting trek that offers an excellent vantage point from the narrow balcony-style ledge looking down into Oman’s incredible canyon. Undoubtedly, Oman is a geological paradise with diverse rock forms cut over millennia into various landforms. And for all outdoor enthusiasts like us, the W6 hiking trail is always a highlight on the Oman itinerary for all the breathtaking views it offers. Here, the canyon plunges dramatically down below while the high edges give a perspective that we’re on top of the world! If not on top of the world, pun intended, at least, we were very close to the Arabian summit. The W6 hike also led us to a cave, a natural pool, and an abandoned village situated between the gorges of the canyon. However, the most stunning aspect of the trek is curving along the inside of the canyon wall on a ledge overlooking the canyon from the top of 1,000 m-high cliffs. With little elevation gain and clear signs, this trek takes up to four hours, depending on how hooked we get with the stunning views.

It has already been my second experience with Golden Higlands in Oman (the first time was in 2015) and both times the company provided a truly excellent logistical base for both real geological fieldwork in rather remote areas and for geological sightseeing in this beautiful country. Hence I can warmly recommend Mansur and his very friendly team for all those (geologists and everybody else) who want to explore the Sultanate of Oman in all its beauty and its topographic complexities.

Golden Highlands is a great company. As I live in Oman, I have first-hand experience of their service. I have participated in trips which Golden Highlands organized for individuals, small groups as well as larger groups. Of course, they know the places that are of interest for tourists, such as cultural highlights, nature, history,... But a unique feature of Golden Highlands is that they have hosted groups of international geologists and therefore are also familiar with the hidden gems of Oman's geology. And if you decide to use their "full package", you can enjoy the delicious food they cook. I can only recommend them.

Geologist from the University of Oslo has established a close collaboration with the Golden Highlands; car rental, trip advice, transport of equipment, etc. As geologist going out in the mountains for field work, we have used these services since 2017 and will keep on in the coming years. Golden Highlands offers a unique combination of good, friendly dialog and very reliable services.

A comfortable experience. The members were all cooperative and friendly. Very good and safe driving. Clean mosques were picked and food was provided. The camping area is clean and includes a toilet and shower. Plastic use is minimal.
