The local legend says that the mountain is haunted. I didn’t see any jinns (Arabic: جن,) other than Egyptian vultures. Strangely enough, my phone’s GPS completely malfunctioned and didn’t record adequate altitude. Nevertheless, the place is remarkable – offering incredible views of Masirah island and strange rock features. Some sources referred to this mountain as Red Mountain or Jebel Al Hamra (Jabal Humr).
Al Khalouf or Al Khaluf is a small village between Bar al Hikman and Sugar Dunes. The place is worthy visiting as the port is quite busy and there is an interesting hidden cave best viewed at low tide.
A day hike in Megalong Valley, New South Wales, Australia.
My personal list of my favourite ten hikes in Muscat, Oman.
The place is very close to Muscat, yet is quite inaccessible.
The hike is very close from Sa’al Mountain. A short walk leads to a hole and a cave feature that is used for beginner abseilers.
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.
Beautiful park to enjoy Polish coast. Woliński Park Narodowy
