At just over 2000 meter. Jebel Shams Resort is ideally situated a few minutes walk from the famous "Grand Canyon of Oman" and a visit to us on Oman's highest Mountain at approximately 3000 Meter is great place from which to enjoy the mountain. A warm welcome is ready for all those weary adventurers who visit it. Enjoy a perfect starry night sky outside one of our Arabic Rents or Chalets and enjoy a warming campfire at night. During the day there are lots of lovely walks and treks to suit all levels of fitness. For those who want to just relax then there is a swimming pool and lovely views of the surrounding stunning mountain vista.

This track is a must, however, you should be well prepared. Make sure you bring 2 liters of water per person and have good tracking shoes. I would say that you should allow around 5 hours for the whole track if you want to relax...More

Yes. The end point is a lake/ pond area and most people miss it. You have to travel over some rocks and follow the cairns to get there. They can be tricky to spot. The views on the walk are spectacular!
