We start the tour by 8:30am from Muscat and straightaway drive to the city of Nakhl. Enroute we visit Barka Fish Market. Our next stop is the 350 year old Nakhl Fort adorning the city and located atop the rocky mountain cliff and surrounded by date plantations. Take some photos and slowly wind down the narrow road through the town to reach the hotsprings of Ayn Al Thuwarah. As it is a popular picnic spot, expect to find local omanis or other foreign tourists flocking the place. After spending some time here, we proceed to Rustaq which is around 55kms southwest of Nakhl and spend some time there. We proceed to our last stop of the day, Wakan village. We get to enjoy a nice scenic offroad drive to reach the entrance of the village. Now is the time to explore the various terrace plantations and several farms in the village. Gaze upon the beautiful yet calm village life and its time for your journey back to Muscat after your amazing tour.
