The "Norway" of Arabia
Take a trip into the world of national geography. The Musandam Peninsula is the northern most part of Oman jutting out into the Strait of Hormuz at the entrance to the Persian Gulf. Its east coast is sure to draw gasps from even the most experienced traveler. While there′s not a great deal to do in the area′s main town of Khasab (although the Old Souk is worth a visit) it acts as a springboard into the dramatic waterways known as the "Fjords of the Middle East".
There′s only one major hotel from which you can organize your early morning boat ride. Your gaze will be torn between the dramatic cliffs surrounding you and (if you′re lucky) the dolphins yo-yoing in and out of the water alongside a blissful experience.
Musandam Khasb′s beauty is unsurpassed with many tourists get mesmerized by the scenic fjords that cut the Limestone Mountains of Hajar into narrow inlets of waters. The village of Musandam Khasab is located around the hillock.
Musandam Khasab trip is an elegant tour item of Oman. You start your Khasab trip in the morning when you are taken for a drive via Ras Al Khaimah, which is an Emirate of UAE. The drive is entertaining as you watch the breathtaking sceneries, the mountains on one side and the sea on the other side. We will stop in certain places so that you can indulge in some nature gazing and photography. You will be having great time with your friends and family. Once you reach Khasab harbor, you board the traditional Omani wooden dhow for cruising. You cruise along Khor al Shim, the longest fjord in Musandam. The cruise will halt at Telegraph Island where you can get into your swimming costume or you can enjoy the amazingly colorful marine life by snorkeling. From Telegraph you proceed to Seebi islands. Throughout the cruise you will see the small fishing villages and their stone houses dotting the landscape. Onboard sumptuous continental buffet shall be served to you. You would be able to watch dolphins too in action in the waters; it is one of the highlights of the tour.
