Duration: ca.10 hrs – 550 km
Wadi Fanja  Sumail Gap, Wahiba Sands, Bedouin Camp, Wadi Bani Khalid

Depart from Muscat at 08:00 hrs. Our first stop is in Fanja, appreciating the great panoramic views of Wadi Fanja.

We proceed through the Sumail Gap in the Hajar Mountains on to Wahiba Sands - a sweeping mass of rolling sand dunes, which rise up to 200 meters and are host to a variety of flora and fauna.

The ever changing pattern and colors of the dunes in the Wahiba Sands make this area a photographic delight. We also visit a Bedouin camp and experience the wonderful hospitality that can be found even in this desert wilderness.

Later, at Wadi Bani Khalid, you will find small but picturesque villages established deep in this mountain valley. This wadi has beautiful blue pools, a perfect place for a scenic walk along the rocky canyon floor surrounded by huge boulders and sheer cliffs.
