DAY 1


      Transfer Nizwa - Kamah


      Hiking and Swimming in Wadi Kamah

A nice hike in a valley coming down from Jebel Akhdar, to reach fresh cristal water pools. The hike is mainly easy on a well made path with some bouldering in the wadi bed. At the end of the walk there is a very short more tricky part for which we set up a handrail.

- Level 4    
- Approximative length : 6 heures
- Elevation gain/loss : +400m/-400m
- Walking time : 4 a 5 heures

      Transfer Kamah - Jebel Shams Plateau


      Bivouac in Jebel Shams Range

Wonderful place for a bivouac! We'll set up our camp at 1800m in a nice and quiet place. From the surroundings e have nice views over Jebel Misht and its impressive cliffs.

Individual camping tent



DAY 2


      Hike To Jebel Shams Summit (South flank)

We start walking at the first light of the dawn from the plateau of Jebel Shams.We head to the edge of the Grand Canyon from where we have stunning views. We'll probably see vultures enjoying the first ascending winds of the day. We'll follow the Grand Canyon and cross several small plateau. The gigher we climb the bigger are the trees. Finaly we arrive to a pass from where we have stunning views over Wadi Sahtan, some 2000 meters below us. On our left side the other summit of Jebel Shams is occupied by a military radar. We go on the right and follow the ridge until we reach the summit. We come back the same way. It is a beautiful but very long hike (more than 26 km and more than 1000m height difference) that require to be fit and and used to demanding hikes.
