Beautiful Oman Filmed in Sizzling Indian Song “Jiya” for the Movie “Gunday”

The Daily Mail says this song is “set to make temperatures soar”. ¬†With the cool temperatures brought on by the recent rains, let’s hope so! ūüôā

Anyone recognize which exact areas of Oman are in this video? ¬†I’m pretty sure I recognize the dhow (Arabian boat) and area of Bandar Khiran from 1:19-1:22 and again at 2:08-209. ¬†The mountains and hills of Oman are so beautiful that most of the shots could have been filmed just about anywhere.

This song was published on youtube just 6 days ago (Jan. 15, 2014) and already has more than 507,000 views!

Hiking at Wadi Bini Kharus

Wadi Bini Kharus is about 200 kms from Muscat. I wanted to share this video with any viewers thinking of making the trek up north to experience this impressive hiking trail. I must warn you that this is a bit of a challenging hike requiring climbing up and down some pretty rugged boulders.

Wakan Village in Wadi Mastal in the Wilayat of Nakhal

This fantastic video was published on May 17, 2013 by¬†SNK Productions Oman.¬†¬†“The village sits at 2,000 metres above sea level in Wadi Mastal¬†in Wilayt¬†Nakhal, located in¬†Al Batinah South Governorate. 150 kilometres separate this village from Muscat. The road leading to the village passes through a number of valleys where the villages can only be reached by a four-wheel-drive vehicle.”
