  • The first thing surprising is the location, at the top of a hill from which the more q is governed imposing mountains in the background interwoven into the blue sky, the Valley with the wadi and the other dark mountains in the background. A very sad indication in very bad state indicates the path to the tombs. Else there is to see it in mesopotamia also found this type of funerary construction

  • For photographers a must, very idyllically situated against a mountain. Be sure to go the golden hour here!

  • One of many abandoned villages who meet in Oman. Worth a quick visit, if in passing, but not a detour. The best light-for photographers ...-is around sunset

Where to stay in Nizwa

Nizwa has relatively few accommodations to offer its guests, drawn to the historical core of the former capital. The relative lack of tourist infrastructure may well be what's keeping the traditional feel of the city center alive. A couple of standard hotels can be found in the center, and a few more in the towns to the north and south along Highway 21. The capital, Muscat, lies about an hour and a half's drive to the north-east along a good quality highway. Most visitors simply visit Nizwa during a day trip from the capital.
