One Night in Ras Al Had
2 Days Tour In Night in Ras Al Had
Sinkhole - Wadi Shab - Sur - Ras Al Had
Our tour departs from Muscat in the morning towards Ras Al Hadd with our first stop at the beautiful Bimmah Sinkhole. This stunning depression is situated in the limestone of eastern Muscat Governorate in Oman and is around 50 m by 70 m wide and 20 m deep. It’s located 600 m away from the sea, between Dibab and Bimmah village. The sinkhole’s formation was caused by a collapse of the surface layer due to the dissolution of underlying limestone beneath it. To preserve its beauty, a park has been developed by the local municipality. Swimming within its turquoise lake is also an option!
We then head for the Wadi Shab, an outlandish canyon with palm trees and evidence of water from the mountains. It requires a 45-minute hike through the gorge in proper walking shoes, arriving at one of many crystal-clear pools where you can swim from pool to pool. Eventually, we come to the last pool with a gap in between the colossal rocks that allows us to swim into an awe-inspiring crevice cave. In here, showering water greets us as sunlight filters in to transform it into a mesmerizing turquoise blue.
Following our tour from Wadi Shab, we continue to Sur, where you can see traditional wooden Dhows being built, and we will visit the old part of Sur where most houses have wooden doors and windows.
From Sur we drive to Ras Al Hadd, then check in at the hotel/resort. After dinner, we take you to the Turtle sanctuary at Ras Al Jinz, where we’ll do a guided walk on the beach under the stars at night, where you have a high chance of seeing Oman’s great sea turtles stumbling onto the beach to build nests and lay eggs, and you might even see baby turtles hatching from some nests if you’re lucky.
Wadi Bani Khalid, Wahiba Sands, and Muscat
Today we drive to Wadi Bani Khalid, one of Oman’s largest and most beautiful Wadis. After reaching Wadi Bani Khalid, a short walk (wearing walking shoes) will lead you to sparkling, blue, clear water pools 9 meters in depth, ideal for long swims and sunbathes in a beautiful scenic Wadi Canyon.
In the afternoon we continue our journey to Wahiba Sands. This spectacular desert covers an area of 12,500 square kilometres and is also known as Al Sharqiya Sands. Formerly it was called ‘Wahiba’ after the Bani Wahiba tribe in Oman’s Eastern Region, with a boundary of 180 km (110 mi) from north to south and 80 km (50 mi) from east to west. With our experienced guide, have fun in the golden sands and enjoy dune bushing!
