Jebel Shams, Balcony Walk & Al Hamra Village

Topping just above 3,000m, Jebel Shams (‘Mountain of the Sun’) is the highest peak on the Arabian Peninsula. It is not uncommon to see snow and hail in the winter months, and in the summer months is still prone to inclement weather. Within this environment is what is commonly called Oman ‘Grand Canyon’, a majestic semi-circular canyon, mid-way around the rim of which is the ‘Balcony Walk. Although generally classified as ‘moderate’ in intensity, the drops can be sheer so walkers should be comfortable with heights. On the return trip to Muscat the 400-year old village of Al Hamra offers some glimpses into the traditional village living of years gone by.
