Description
Waypoints (0)

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.
