Mazara Dam, Muscat
(4.5/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
Nature and man-made infrastructure harmoniously coexist at Mazara Dam, which provides much of the region's drinking water. Completed in 2012, the dam collects vast amounts of the mountain rainfall, controlling the flow of water to the distant villages below. Take a picnic and sit in the lush parkland by the 8 km (5 mi) reservoir, which boasts a capacity of 100 million cu m (3.5 billion cu ft) of fresh rainwater. Drive to the 75 m (246 ft) heights of the dam for a scenic view of the surrounding amber limestone mountains and valleys. Use our Muscat vacation trip planner to visit Mazara Dam on your trip to Muscat, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.
