Oman’s highest mountain, Jebel Shams (Mountain of the Sun; 3009m), is best known not for its peak but for the view into the spectacularly deep Wadi Ghul lying alongside it. The straight-sided Wadi Ghul is known locally as the Grand Canyon of Arabia, as it fissures abruptly between the flat canyon rims, exposing vertical cliffs of 1000m and more.

Did you know that: In the mountains in Oman, due to the height difference, the temperature it’s 10-15 degrees less than in Dubai. How cool is that?

Many different styles Yoga sessions, meditation, stargazing & hiking. All that with stunning views.

We will leave Dubai on Thursday after work (you can also fly to Muscat) and come back on Saturday evening.
