No other wadi in Oman packs so much excitement into such a small place as Wadi Ta’ab. This little canyon has it all. Isolation, rappels, swims, jumps, sheer walls, and beauty. However, all these features require respect or the canyon will punish you.
I’ve done canyoning, climbing, off-roading, hiking, flying, but there’s one thing I haven’t done in Oman. Caving! Probably the best cave chamber to visit is the Canyon Room, accessed from the Seventh Hole on the Salmah Plateau.
Paramotoring has quietly been around for a few years in Oman, but the new kids on the block, SkySchool, bring it to the next level.
Wadi Bani Habib is a wonderful place to explore, especially if you are like me: curious and looking for something new. Here, atop Jebal Akhdar, you will discover the recently abandoned village of Habib, active walnut orchards, and an unused path all to yourself.
There are a ton of caves in Oman of all sizes. Majlis al Jinn is the largest and most unique, but thousands of other caves dot the countryside and make for some interesting surprises if you happen to have a look. This month I share with you a taste from both sides of the cave spectrum.
You probably didn’t know it, but Oman is a fantastic place for rock climbing. There are some challenges with the heat, but the rock is fantastic, and the climbing community is even better. Strap on your climbing shoes we are going to the crag.
I always wanted to try out a via ferrata, and it finally happened with a visit to Oman’s newest via ferrata at the Alila Jabal Akhdar hotel. A via ferrata is a protected climbing route, and Jebal Akhdar is one of the most beautiful places in Oman. Mix the two together to make a memorable adventure in the mountains.
