This historical adventure will take you back to the times of sailors ad We start our hike in the heart of the old part of Muscat, as take a steep path that winds up and over the mountains that surround the cornice.
Just under 100 steps get us to the first viewpoint with green park and golden mountains framing the ocean view.
The path we take winds through the wadi and is what used to connect two parts of the old town before the cornice road was created. Just 10 minutes in and we are away from the hustle and bustle, fully immersed in nature.
The trek takes 2-3 hours and will lead us right to the start of Muttrah Souq, home to small local shops. We explore the Souq, and take a walk along the Cornice to explore the old Fort, towering on the cliff and then head back to the hotel.
This experience is full of local charm, history and adventure.
