The challenge

  • Experience true wilderness trekking just two hours from Dubai
  • Walk through stunning canyons
  • Visit the Fjords of Arabia
  • Discover the mysterious Musandam Peninsula
  • Explore remote abandoned villages

The Oman Mountain Desert Trek is a spectacular challenge that will offer you a fantastic sense of achievement at the end and the chance to experience the traditional way of Omani life. This trek will take you from the coastal town of Dibba, following ancient footpaths between abandoned villages and through wadis, canyons and the dramatic coastline. You’ll visit remote villages before climbing into the mountains to reach the summit of Gebel Qihwi at 1,800m. During the days you’ll be dwarfed by mountains, carved out through the limestone over millennia. Experience speed boats up the coast, camping in the desert and campfires in secluded bays under the night sky strewn with stars. It is a truly unique adventure in to the wilderness – you won’t pass any other climbers or tourists on this trek.
