Off Road Drive with Omani Nature at its best. Little water fall for good swim. U can find place for children as well in crystal clear natural pool. Carry enough water and food and cap for all is advisable.

It's not an easy place to get to but the destination is well worth the trip. If you just like wandering round an old village or want a good walk in the mountains this is the place for you.

Take a drive from Muscat to Sur via ameerat. Take the diversion to Arbeieen.. 4WD is recommended since some part of the road is unpaved and slope. enjoy the greater pool at the end located between giant mountains. Camp and enjoy your stay.

Yes you can. If you know how to drive in manual mode. Only one place will crucial while coming back. If you have any company with 4W car and pulling belt, it’s better. When I went, I saw a Toyota Corolla.

sorry for the late reply. to my knowledge it is best that you rent a 4X4 and use google maps to get there. tour operators just want a quick buck and are unwilling to take just a few people to this location.
