Overview
More
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.

Keep in mind, that it is not possible to reach the TOP by car. There is a road, but it is closed by military. You can drive to fantastic spot, which is at approx. 2000m level, so around 1000m below the summit. There is a...More

jebel shams is a must see in Oman. The „balcony walk“ offers best views. It’s relatively easy, but a little bit exposed for people who are afraid of heights. There is a lake at the end of the trail. To reach it you have to...More
