Full description
Begin with pickup from your hotel in Muscat and travel to Nakhl, a typical Omani village located west of the capital. It lies at the foothills of the mountains near an abundant source of water, which irrigates the extensive nearby date palm plantations.

As you approach Nakhl, keep an eye out on the fortress that sits on a hill outside the village. The fort’s origin is pre-Islamic with major contributions by the Al Ya’ruba and the Al Bu Sayed dynasties. Visit the ancient site, and wander along its walls and through its museum. Next, visit the Al Thowarah Hot Springs, located a few kilometers from Nakhl Fort. Then enjoy some time at the Seeb souq by the ocean, and finally, be transferred back to your hotel in Muscat.
