DAY 1


      Transfer Nizwa - Al Khitaym


      Jebel Shams' Via Ferrata

We start from the small hamlet of Al Khitaym. The approach walk (1 and half to 2 hours) is already a great excursion in itself : we walk on an easy path overhanging Arabia's Grand Canyon. We then arrive to an abandonned troglodyte village which we cross to arrive the the beginning of the via ferrata. It's a vetical via ferrata that was bolted in a crap of the cliff, along the ancient escape way of the villagers when they aere attacked. The climb is about 150 m. We then walk on a ledge to reach a the second part of the via ferrata to arrive on the plateau

- Approximative length : 4 heures

      Transfer Jebel Shams Plateau - Nizwa
