Wahiba Sands, Jalan Bani Buhassan

#2 of 14 in Things to do in Ash-Sharqiyah Governorate
A seemingly endless landscape of barren rolling dunes, Wahiba Sands gives you a taste of life in this extreme environment. Explore the dunes via vehicle, camel, or horse, climbing up and along towering sand hills, which are home to the nomadic Bedouin people. No permanent settlements exist in this vast plain, although camps do provide welcome pit stops and overnight stays to those wishing to experience the desert's starry night sky. Bring plenty of water, scarves, and eyewear to protect against desert winds.
