Oman is a secluded block of some of the world's oldest rocks dating back 800 million years. The most remarkable facet of this region is the incredible natural beauty. Yet for such a desolate land there is really wondrous diversity for great Oman trekking holidays.
The natural elegance, and the divergence that exist here, relentlessly take your breath away because within short distances you can find yourself hiking down rugged sandy wadis and across stunning dunes, trekking through beautiful canyons & wadis to lush green oases.
Walkable landscapes through limestone canyons, ragged-ridged tabletop mountain ranges, desert, and many wild areas will attract Oman trekking enthusiasts to relish the undiscovered nature. The limestone geology also yields an array of huge caves, which you can discover during your hike or trek such as Al Jin & Al Hotta Cave.
You will enjoy a great day and discover the breathtaking views from the mountains to the sea side of the souk. The hiking track will take you through the mountain range that encircles the Harbor, souk and the Corniche road. Beautiful rock formations (volcanic ophiolite rocks), mountain shrubs and clear crystal water in the wadi will be waiting for you. You will need to do a bit of climbing and navigating through slippery rocks in the track (suitable trekking shoes are required for the tour). The tour will take 3-4 hours, including the walk back to the car park.For More Information

The tour offers magnificent views for the mountains and the Grand Canyon. The geological processes which formed the canyon over many millennia are almost beyond comprehension. There are two treks at Jabal shams for adventure seekers:

W6: It is basically a 5 hrs round trip walk which leads to the bottom of the canyon. It is also called balcony walk.
The path goes along the cliffs, overlooking a precipitous canyon. Most of the time the path has a sloping drop-off on one side; below this steep slope, the cliff drops off dramatically into a deep & perpendicular chasm
Enjoying the breathtaking views of the green terraces, trek to the old village Wadi Bani Habib, visit the rose gardens during your hike to Al Uqor, Al Ain & Al Sherija villages. In Wadi Bani Habib we walk down winding stone steps into a narrow gorge filled with walnut and apricot trees and flowering shrubs. The greenery contrasts nicely with the brown bare rocks of the mountains and the sienna-colored ruins of two villages, made of stone in various stages of dereliction and clinging to the edges of steep sandstone cliffs.For More Information
Omans' rocky landscape is considered a geologists' heaven because all the rock formations and various striations are open for study; there is no greenery to cover up the abundant “evidence.” You will be taken to wadi Damm for a hike through the barren mountains and wander all around the spot passing some small but not terribly shallow pools. We will be invited to have a swim after a hike in the pool enjoying the refreshing reprieve from the heat.For More Information
