Ras Madrakah is an excellent day-trip opportunity for anyone visiting Duqm or on the way to Salalah (through Hasik).
The place offers fantastic camping spots overlooking black mountains and golden sand beaches. Also great bird spotting and off-roading, with nice weather even during the hot summer months.
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.
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.
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…
Best views of Muscat. White Mountain.
