Really great trail. Better known as Balcony Trail (maybe change the name?). Well maintained, lots of clear markings, good path. Trail ends at a deserted village, do yourself a favour and continue to the lovely lake: go to the terraces (cross a mossy stream - watch out for slippery stones) and follow the cairns up to higher ground. Trail moves to the left and ends after 5 minutes at a beautiful lake underneath a rocky overhang. Great place for a picnic! Route was reasonably busy in February. Will be very hot in Summer.Show more

A trip to the highest point of Oman and the Arabian Peninsula. Not technical, but at those temperatures easy things become problematic . On the ascent, chose your own route across a few small wadis, downhill follow the rim of the Saydran Gorge  - a side wadi offering truly spectacular views into the Wadi an Nakhur - Oman's Grand Canyon. Except for the goats, lizards and birds not a living soul on the way.Show more

This is the route of the Oman by UTMB 130km Trail Running Race. It combines singletrack, gravel roads, and some very technical segments. It takes you along the heights of the Green Mountain, Jebel Al Akhdar, run through ancient, deserted villages, traverse plateaus, navigate stunning ridges and pass through beautiful wadis, before finally descending into the traditional mountain village of Misfat Al Abriyyin and on to the finish. Please note the course may change from year to year. Show more
