Visiting the extremities of Oman is something I enjoy, for both Musandam and Dhofar have unique scenery and culture.
In Dhofar we were expertly guided along the slopes of the massive escarpment of Jabal Samhan. Following little used paths, we walked up the mountain slopes under good cloud cover that created ideal walking weather. Our route was along old camel tracks, perhaps originally used to transport frankincense from the valleys behind the escarpment. Wild animals also use these pathways we saw scat and spore showing the overnight journeys of animals.
