My personal list of my favourite ten hikes in Muscat, Oman.

The place is very close to Muscat, yet is quite inaccessible.

Enjoy interesting rock formations and find fossils in Rock Garden, Duqm in Oman.

Fantastic place to visit for a day, close to Muscat with water flowing all year round, ruins and new/ancient falaj system in As Suwayh, great hiking in Al Awabi.

This is a place that I would highly recommend visiting for any nature lover living in Oman. You will spend at least 5 hours driving there from Muscat, so plan your escape well.

Our second trip to Salalah to visit few places that we missed during our 2019 Khareef trip.

About 1 hour away from Salalah there is a beautiful cliff and beach (Efftalqut). A short, but requiring 4×4, drive from the beach you can spot an abandoned ship. Quite a surreal view.

Nested between magnificent mountains this is a perfect location to enjoy a great sunny day or an overnight stay.

Persian steps is a section of the trail that’s used for sport competitions as it leads directly to Jebel Akhdar.

Wadi Abyadh – geology, water, pools…
