Close to the peak lies a deep chasm called the An Nakhr Balcony, one of the most beautiful places to visit in Oman. Discover the highest peak in the Arabian Peninsula, rising to an altitude of 3,004 metres above sea level, with all its slopes and summits. Explore this region along various routes like the ‘Rim Walk’ (route W6A) and the ‘Abandoned Village Walk’ (route W6). For the true adventurer and hiker, rise to the challenge of the well-known ‘Summit Walk’ (route W4) where you’ll depart from the village of As Sab (1,800 m), walk up to 2,700 m and then ascend to the peak at 2,997 m, for truly unforgettable views. Booking in advance required.
