"Al Hamra & Misfah - Beautiful old mountain towns" Al Hamra' by victorwkf

Al Hamra' Travel Guide: 14 reviews and 26 photos

The mountain towns of Al Hamra and Misfah are located along the spectacular Western Hajar Mountains and not to be missed when you are at Oman. Besides the interesting architecture of the buildings, the way of life here are still very simple and rural.

Let me share with you my experiences and photographs of Al Hamra and Misfah which I hope you will find useful, and perhaps give your comments and ratings. Thanks.

    Beautiful pictures of great sceneries which remind me some parts of southern Morocco (village/town by bright green oasis and mountains in the background + huge desert space between).
