After travelling just a few kilometres you will find yourselves absorbed in an almost lunar world where unreal mountains dominate the view. Heading off road we will proceed to the Wadi Ál Arbeieen, a stupendous canyon with tall mountainous walls covered with lush vegetation, where the course of the water has created little green-blue ponds and swimming pools. Here you will have the opportunity to take endless photos, to visit a typical Omani village where the rhythm of a simple daily life has remained uninfluenced by modern ways. Local inhabitants are always cordial and hospitable and the children will greet you with their touching smiles. In the late afternoon we drive back to Muscat. Lunch will be served en route.
