Itinerary:

Memphis Tours representative will pick you up from your hotel to start your wonderful Trekking in Riyam. You will start by following the colored markers from the parking area at Riyam. An old, rusty diesel pipeline is evidence of a time when the only power station in Oman was located in Riyam, and supplies of diesel oil were pumped through the pipeline from a ship anchored at Mutrah. You may notice the well-placed stone slabs leading up the hill. They have been used by countless generations of visitors from Mutrah and the interior, to help them climb the last hills before they entered the gate of Muscat. At that time, the only way to get to Muscat was by sea or over this path. Once you have reached the higher parts of the route, turn around to enjoy the amazing view over the cost and sea. Be careful when descending towards the abandoned settlement as it can get slippery in parts. Have a look at the old water cistern and the falaj irrigation system, which are still visible, and then enjoy the scramble that is sometimes necessary to pass the wadi leading to Mutrah.Take care otherwise you might walk through it. After completing your trekking path in oman our guide will drive you back to your hotel.
