Spectacular scenery

The Musandam Penisula which is part of Oman sits immediately below The Straits of Hormuz on the Arabian Peninsula. It is a wild and beautiful place. The wonderful cliffs which reach to the sea in the fjord like bays are truly exquisite

Dhow in Musandam

The dhows are the traditional Omani fishing boat. They are very comfortable with cushions on the floor. This is the travelling mode for the Musamdam peninsula.

    Besides Salalah, this is one of the places in Oman I regretted not being able to visit. Thanks for sharing and take care :)

    It is a shame that few people visit here because from your photos and description, it looks/sounds amazing. Your adventures must have been phenomenal.
