Did the balcony walk with teenagers to abandoned village. Stunning scenery and well worth the effort. We did walk in early morning at about 8am which meant temperature was ok. Only downside was that sun was rising above canyon so could not get great photos....More

Majestic and with perfect light to the million of pictures. Getting there with a normal car (not a 4x4) is a bit challenging but feasible.

Lovely experience with an absolutely amazing nature and view. Well worth the drive from Muscat as you can stop at charming Nizwa and Misfath to make it a full day excursion.

Quite spectacular is probably an understatement. Such complex topography that it deserves to be taken in at leisure in different light at varied times of day. Walk the cliff ledge down to rock dwellings, pause frequently to just take it in. But wear good shoes...More

Absolutely to be visited. Great canyon and mountains. Go for a walk in the area. There are some hotels in the mountains to stay.

Oman's Grand Canyon is definitely worth a visit. We visited around noon and the late October Sun was perfect for good viewing. We felt a big negative is that just a minuscule portion is fenced off, because of which we did not try the views...More

Very impressive and quite deserted even in December. When I was there it was not cold as I was expecting. It is quite scary to see 400 mtrs direct fall.

It took us about 4 hours ( longer than expected) to get to the abandoned village and back. We did not make it to the pool area as needed to get back to the car by 5.30 pm to drive down Jebel Shams before sun-set....More

Yes you can go by normal car, but keep in mind that about 7 km is unpaved gravel road , in good condition but steep.Not far from the resort starts one of the most beautiful walks ( W6 )of Oman .
