What to expect

In the morning you will be collected from your hotel and driven to Barka to see the Fish Souq in full swing with all the noise and local color that you can imagine. Cherish the date palm plantations on the road to Nakhl where you will enjoy the warm waters of the Thowara Spring, see the impressive falaj system and wander around the highest fort in Oman. After a picnic or lunch in a local restaurant take the mountain-lined road to Rustaq to see its ancient fort rich in history and visit the Al Kisfr Hot Springs. The four towers of Rustaq Fort are called: Al Burj Al Ahmar, Al Burj Al Hadeeth, Al Burj Al Reeh and Al Burj Ashiateen which means the devil’s tower! Note that thousands of visitors flock to Rustaq each year to bathe in the medicinal hot waters of Al Kisfr. Finally, you will drive out onto the gravel plains to see the 18th century Islamic architecture of Al Hazm Castle and its magnificent collection of restored cannons.
