Posted By : admin/ 0
(Duration: 08 Hours – 340 KM BY 4WD)

This tour provides us with many interesting contrasts. We proceed towards the fishing town of Quriyat through the stark mountain terrain. Drive through this fishing village visiting the 400-year-old Quriyat Fort before heading for the Fish souk where a variety of fish is traded for local consumption as well as export. Drive along the picturesque waterfront. There is a good chance of spotting Flamingos and Eagles at an inland stream. From here we proceed towards the coast and visit the spectacular Bimah sinkhole which is a limestone crater with blue-green water at the bottom. We then start on an adventurous route cutting through the mountains. At the end of the drive, Wadi Arbayeen awaits with its deep pools of water set among the date palms. Enjoy a picnic lunch here (on own). Drive back via Wadi Mazara

(It is advisable to wear light comfortable clothing and walking shoes).
