Day 1: Welcome ! You will be picked up by our team and transferred to the first camping spot at a resort in Jebel Shams which overlooks Oman’s Grand Canyon. Enjoy the cool temperatures and the views from the plateau.
Day 2: We begin the day with the Jebel Shams Balcony Walk which follows the canyon and leads to the abandoned village of Sab Bani Khamis. We reach the hidden pool where we abseil 20 meters before continuing the adventure to the start of the Via Ferrata. The climb begins with an 80m vertical ascent, followed by a traverse and an easier ascent and finally ending the climb with a short hike out of the canyon.

Next, a visit to Nizwa Souq where you can find many souvenirs including high-quality pottery, handicrafts and silver. Transfer back to Muscat.
