Al Aqbiyah region (Muscat, Oman) features a few point of interests including: Wadi Aqbiyah (hike), Ayn Al Hammam (hot spring), Wadi Hammam lookout, and Al Awabi quartzite site.
Samharam is located at the outlet of Wadi Darbat. Is is an ancient city, now just ruins, known to be part of the frankincense road. The location tells the story of an ancient civilization in Dhofar and its reliance on having access to fresh water.
Taqah is a small coastal town 30-minute drive away from Salalah, Dhofar (Oman).
It’s quite challenging to find a comprehensive recommendation or a list of what to visit in Salalah and around. The best time is obviously around Khareef (monsoon) season, which is an unique chance to experience rain and fog in Oman.
The trip to Fazayah beach was one of the Khareef highlights. Must visit.
