fanja SoUQ-FANJA OLD VILLAGE-WADI QURAI-SUMAIL LAKE
Fanja old souq is one of the most prominent traditional Souqs in Oman. Located in Fanja in the Wilayat of Bidbid in Al Dakhiliyah. At the Souq Al Fanja, Pottery is the main attraction and they come in different designs and patterns catering to different occasions. It is a historical town renowned for its hot springs, forts and watch towers. But other than the natural beauty of the place, one of its top attractions is its traditional souq. Our next stop is Wadi Qurai is a really cool and scenic wadi located about an hour (95 kms) from Muscat, on the way to Nizwa. It’s an easy stop for a few hours exploration, hiking and swimming.
It’s easy to find the starting point as you have to cross the wadi on about 10’ high falaj.
It’s a super beautiful canyon with some fun rocks to climb over. Then our last stop is Sumail lake is truly a beautiful representation of nature at its finest. When looking at the surroundings of the lake, it is located in the middle of nowhere!! You will only be able to hear the wind blowing. When we went it was quite windy, which made it more pleasant, as it wasn't as warm. Then back to Muscat.
