Where is Oman?
Oman is situated in the south eastern corner of the Arabian Peninsula. It is surrounded by the sea on two sides, the Sea of Oman to the Northeast and the Arabian Sea and the Indian Ocean to the Southeast.
Local Attractions in Oman
In addition to its expansive desert quarters, Oman is an adventure-seeker’s paradise with vast topographic features. For visitors looking to explore off the beaten track away from comforts of the city, a variety of outdoor activities await in the Sultanate’s unique natural environment, from the peaks of the Hajar mountain range to spectacular wadis (valleys).
The mountains of the Sultanate - rising up to an altitude of 3,004 metres above sea level - are a popular hiking destination with spectacular views. Aquatic hikes, village walks and Via Ferrata, as well as over-night camping, are some of the many outdoor activities available.
Adding another dimension to the country’s landscape are a multitude of wadis that are accessible to explore, each with its unique characteristics. Adventurers can hike the wadi trail, explore caves or cool-off in turquoise freshwater pools.
Climate in Oman
The best months to visit Oman is from September to March, when the temperature ranges from 25 to 30 degrees Celsius. Even throughout the summer months (April to September), the climate in the Al Hajar mountains and the Dhofar area stays mild.
Dressing modestly is encouraged, especially when visiting holy places.
You should observe Omani culture's basic decency; Loud or disorderly behavior (or gestures) are not welcome.
