11 Beautiful Places to Visit in Oman in 2020

1) Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, Muscat 

The fundamental supplication corridor of the Grand Mosque in Muscat, one of the most wonderful spots to visit in Oman 

Most outings to Oman start in the capital Muscat and high on everybody's rundown is a visit to the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque. It's a staggering present day mosque that satisfies its name with space for 20,000 admirers. The excessive primary supplication corridor includes a monstrous ceiling fixture, unpredictably itemized blue mosaic tiles, and the second biggest high quality Iranian mat on the planet—it took 600 ladies four years to weave. 

The mosque's grounds are a peaceful spot to meander and appreciate the amicable lines and openings of the different structures and delightful nurseries. On our visit an uncommon downpour shower transformed the marble floors into an intelligent pool.

Before dusk head to the opposite side of Muscat to the Mutrah Corniche. Join local people for a walk around the dazzling seafront where white structures and mosques are supported by rough mountains and fortifications that gleam brilliant in the late evening light. 

Close by you can shop in the thin paths of the Mutrah Souq, probably the most established market in Oman, for frankincense and myrrh, fired incense burners, silver gems, pashminas, turbans, genie lights, cushy camels, and substantially more. MutrahCorniche in Muscat, Oman

3) Jabrin Fort 

Jabrin Fort (or Jabreen Castle), Oman 

From Muscat we prescribe traveling inland to the Nizwa region where you can investigate strongholds, mountains, and antiquated towns. 

Jabrin Fort (otherwise called Jabreen Castle) goes back to 1675 and appears as though a sand manor in the midst of a desert spring of date palms. You can meander through the maze of rooms and see the protective strategies utilized like the homicide gaps, holes in the floor where they used to pour bubbling date oil on foes. JabrinFort (or Jabreen Castle), Oman

4) Nizwa Fort 

Nizwa Fort, Oman 

Another famous fortification to visit is the seventeenth century Nizwa Fort with its enormous round pinnacle which you can move for perspectives on the mosque, souq, inaccessible rough mountains, and the date palms that encompass this desert garden city. 

Nizwa Fort has as of late been renovated and there are currently verifiable things in plain view like gems, instruments, and a course of events of the territory's history. You can likewise watch ladies making specialties and heating bread over an open fire. Pay special mind to the homicide openings here as well. NizwaFort, Oman

5) Jebel Akhdar 

Jebel Akhdar, Oman 

Jebel Akhdar implies Green Mountain yet you may ask why as you rise its record dim and consumed orange sides, infertile with the exception of a couple of prickly evaporated shrubs. The green alludes to the towns of the Saiq Plateau, 2000m above ocean level, where bounteous precipitation permits the development of pomegranates, grapes, peaches, apricots, and roses for the rose water that is utilized in Omani desserts and as scent. Spring is the best time to visit when the roses are in sprout and the porch ranches are an energetic green. 

Jebel Akhdar is a simple day trip from Nizwa (or even Muscat), yet you do require a 4WD to rise the precarious winding street (we contracted a driver at the police checkpoint). The perspectives from the highest point of the towns encompassed by spiked pinnacles are awesome, and the virus air is an alleviation from the hot fields. JebelAkhdar, Oman

6) Misfat al Abryeen 

Misfat Al Abriyeen, Oman 

The greater part of the old towns in Oman have been deserted, however Misfat al Abryeen is as yet occupied and is one of the most beautiful in Oman. It's a labyrinth like town of disintegrating mud houses in restricted ways inclining down the mountainside. Beneath the town you can follow the falaj water system channels and stroll through the lavish date and banana estates—it's incredibly green after the desert. MisfatAl Abriyeen, Oman

7) Jebel Shams 

The view on the Balcony Walk at Jebel Shams, perhaps the best activity in Oman 

It's a lengthy drive on steep, harsh streets to the highest point of Jebel Shams, Oman's most noteworthy mountain, yet it's justified, despite all the trouble for the dazzling perspectives where it counts into Wadi Ghul, known as the Grand Canyon of Arabia. It's one of the most lovely places in Oman. 

Our feature was the Balcony Walk, a genuinely simple however sensational 2.5-hour climb which twists around the bluffs most of the way up the edge of the ravine to the surrendered town of As Sab. Minor stone and mud houses roost unstably on the edge of the gorge under an edge of rock—a crazy spot to live. Theview on the Balcony Walk at Jebel Shams, one of the best things to do in Oman

8) Wahiba Sands 

Wahiba Sands, Oman 

For the genuine desert experience head to Wahiba Sands for moving sand hills, camel rides, and 4WD undertakings. We went through a night in a provincial goat-hair Bedouin tent at the foot of a gigantic rise which we moved for nightfall and dawn. We watched camels meandering past, drank tea by the fire, and looked at the sky lit up with stars. It was brilliantly serene. WahibaSands, Oman

9) Wadi Bani Khalid 

Channel Bani Khalid in Oman 

One of our preferred things about Oman were the channels, rough gorges or dry riverbeds that just contain water at specific occasions of the year, however many have pools you can swim in. 

Watercourse Bani Khalid is a dazzling desert garden in the desert with completely clear green water encompassed by date palms and tough mountains. The pools are colossal and swimming in them is so invigorating in the desert heat. It's the ideal spot for a loosening up evening. WadiBani Khalid in Oman

10) Sur 

Sur, Oman 

At Sur the desert meets the ocean. You'll discover long void sea shores, the pleasant angling town of Al Ayjah, a dhow vessel building yard, and simply north, the turtle hold at Ras Al Jinz. (Unfortunately there were no turtles on the sea shore when we visited for the 5 am visit). Sur,Oman

11) Wadi Shab 

Aqueduct Shab, perhaps the best activity in Oman 


While Wadi Bani Khalid is about unwinding, Wadi Shab is about experience. You take a vessel over the stream, climb for 45 minutes through a shocking valley, at that point swim through a progression of pools to arrive at a cavern which contains a cascade. It's dazzling and probably the best activity in Oman. WadiShab, one of the best things to do in Oman
