(Duration: 10 Hours – 400 KM BY 4WD)

Our first stop is at the 300-year-old fort, Bait Na’aman. It’s a beautiful country house, which has been restored and furnished. At this fort, it is seen how traditionally the Imam and his family subsisted. The castle has reinstated all the time-honored artefacts such as Khanjars, artillery, jewellery, and the chinaware. Proceed to Al Awabi and take the turnoff to Wadi Bani Auf. This is a very unique drive through the sedimentary mountains. For those inclined, there is a wonderful canyon to explore on foot. The route through the mountains is dramatic. Bilad Sayt is one of Oman’s most quaint villages with an old-world appeal Explore this tranquil village on foot with its patchwork of terrace farming and traditional houses laid out against the rocky slopes. Enjoy a picnic lunch here. After the visit to the village proceed to the Snake Gorge where one can enjoy a short walk (weather permitting). Proceed to Wadi Sahtan where one gets to meet the beekeepers. View the beautifully carved door at the Al Hazm Fort before returning to Muscat.
