Your guide will pick you up from your hotel in Muscat around 07:30 to take you to Jabal Shams, the highest peak in Oman at over 3000 meters. Jabal Shams means “Mountain of the Sun” in Arabic, named so because it reaches so high into the sky. Your will travel in a 4x4 vehicle so that you can get off of the paved road and see the countryside, which is dotted with traditional farming villages and shepherds with their sheep.
