Petit Futé's opinion on 4X4 SAFARI IN THE MOUNTAINS

Vintage plate 2020

The Musandam escarpments, seemingly deserted and monotonous, conceal many treasures: mountains, certainly, but none resembling the other - sculptures of rocks more or less cut, more or less high, more or less round; tangle of massive blocks as if worked by colossals. The guided 4x4 excursion penetrates into the heart of this mineral environment to the key panoramas and curiosities: the Khor Najd and its acacia valley, the Sayh plateau and its cultures, the Gebel Harim which culminates at 2,097 metres. This summit is the second highest in the sultanate after Gebel Akhdar. Unfortunately, the area is reserved for the military and one cannot go all the way to the top, just passing the pass at 1,572 meters. In the surrounding area, hence the importance of being accompanied by a guide who will know how to lead you to places of interest, fossils abound and some rocks even contain nomadic paintings dating back some 4,000 years - snake, spider, woman. The name Djebel Harim also refers to the "mountain of women", a reference to the time when the Portuguese controlled the Strait and the locals hid women and families high up in the mountains. It is also an opportunity to discover the harsh living environment of the last mountain people of Khasab: humble stone shelters on the sides of sometimes vertiginous walls, natural pools dug into the rock, but dry, terraces of grass and fig trees growing on the stone.
