We leave in the morning to Nakhal, our first visit is a magnificent “Fort” perched on a rocky mountain, which overlooks a small town known as “Date Plantation”. Hereby we have a village called “Thowarah” and it's spring, believed to be full of minerals & healing ingredients.
Continue our journey along the loop to “WadiBani Awf”, an ancient wadi offering breathtaking vistas along its 26km trail, is one of the five spectacular wadis in the “Wilayat of Rustaq”. Picture book, oasis villages, nurtured by copious springs and Falaj system, are a striking feature of Wadi Bani Awf. The wadi is about 10 minutes' drive from the ancient city of Ar-Rustaq and winds its way through the towering heights of Jebel Al Akhdhar. A crumbling watchtower stands high on a crag marking the entrance to the wadi.
We drive further to reach the extraordinary charming farming village called "Ballad Sayt". Enjoy your time at the village. Return back to Muscat in the evening.
