Package Itinerary

Drive through the spectacular Western Hajar Mountains to Nizwa, capital of the interior and birthplace of Islam in the Sultanate of Oman. Nizwa is famous for its Round Tower Fort, built in the 17th century, and the souq with its Friday cattle auction, ornamental silver jewellery and intricately hand-carved ‘khanjars’ (daggers). The historic town of Bahla is encircled by a winding wall and is famous for pottery as well as a large fort which is now included on UNESCO’s world heritage list. Jabrin, built in the late 17th century and the finest of Oman’s castles, became a seat of Omani learning. The castle displays the highest achievement in Omani ceiling painting and has beautifully executed woodcarvings. En route to Muscat visit the pretty village of Birkat al Mauz, situated in the foothills of Jebel Akhdar (Green Mountains) and enjoy a walk through its oasis and date plantations.
