The Gourmet Campers

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.

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.

Lots of wadis/canyons to explore north of Salalah. No descriptions, you are on your own…

About 30 mins away from Salalah there is a nice camping spot with few lookouts. Here is the location. It is possible to go all the way down and explore the wadi further.

Port of Salalah, Dhofar, Oman

Port of Salah is the largest port in Oman. The port operates both a container terminal and a general cargo terminal, and serves the local and regional community including humanitarian assistance to Yemen.
