Take a turnaround trip alongside the Grand Canyon and experience spectacular natural scenery in Jabal Shams. Walk on through old abandoned village ruins and reach to cave with a water pond as a reward for Your efforts on the “Balcony Walk” trek. <br>Located 220km from Muscat (80km from Nizwa) with the closest town Al Hamra, we gonna follow the road from Al Hamra to Wadi Ghul towards Jabal Shams Plateau, carry out until we will reach Al Khitaym village (app. 40km from Al Hamra).<br>An ancient donkey trail, which follows the west flank of the An Nakhur Gorge (known as “Grand Canyon”) and leads to a abandoned village of As Sab - formerly known as Sab Bani Khamis.<br>From the terraces we will also explore Water pool located inside open cave structure (Bi’r Dakhilyah).<br>We gonna return on the same road.<br>The time spent on the trek is set up around 5 hours, which is including the stops to breaks, pictures and break at the Water pool area before returning back).
