Nizwa souq - Nizwa Fortress - - al hamra - jebel shams - grand canyon of oman

We will drive first to Nizwa, the old capital city of Oman. Our first stop is the famous Nizwa Souq. It is among the largest of its kind in Oman. A wide variety of vendors offer their goods in the streets of the souk from 05:00 am to about 10:00 am each morning. Here you can find fish, meat, vegetables, pottery, jewellery, handicrafts, and souvenirs which are sold in authentic old market halls that few places can boast. Especially interesting is the Friday cattle market when the locals from the nearby Villages come to sell their donkeys, goats, cattle, sheep, and chickens in a circus-style open marketplace.


Next to the Souq is Nizwa Fortress. The fort is a museum today and offers splendid views of this ancient town and the surrounding mountains. You can walk around in this impressive fortress and visit its many rooms, passages, and towers. The fort is an architectural testimony to the economic and military achievements of the early Yaruba dynasty from the mid-17th century. It was a military stronghold designed to withstand even the strongest of attacks at the time. Even along the corridors, many traps were laid to deter any intruders that might have penetrated the defences.


Then we drive towards the Jebel Shams Mountain. After a short drive through the ancient village of Al Hamra, we drive up the Mountain to the stunning Grand Canyon of Oman in 2000 m. You can spend the afternoon walking around this famous Grand Canyon. There are many different walking paths to choose from easy and short to difficult and long. The Grand Canyon offers spectacular views of the surrounding valleys and Wadis below. In the late afternoon, we drive back to Muscat.
