“The Grand Canyon of Oman” – Jabal Shams



Jabel Shams (Arabic for “Mountain of the Sun“) is the highest mountain in Oman with the highest peak at 3075 m. It is part of the Al Hajar Mountain Range.


At the bottom before the slow ride up. One definitely needs a 4X4 to make this trip.

  1. Thanks Andy for those pictures…

  2. I was most impressed with this, it is very understated, most majestic, sheer drop! Gave me ‘liquid legs’! Well worth the visit!
