Wahiba Sands Desert 1/2 by Tripoto

Wahiba Sands Desert

Chaitali Patel
Considered to be one of the most beautiful places to camp, it is here that visitors can get a chance to come face-to-face with waves of sand that stretch for miles and interact with its colourful inhabitants - local bedouin communities. The bedouins are an integral part of Oman and have a fascinating way of life. Sleeping under the stars surrounded by towering sand dunes and waking up to the first rays of the sun that turn the sand gradually from orange to gold, would truly be magical. In addition Wahiba offers a variety of adventure desert activities such as camel rides, dune bashing, trekking and more.

Only a few hours drive from Muscat is the magnificent Wahiba Sands, an awe-inspiring sight. Choose one of the many tourist companies to take you on a 4×4 Dune Bashing excursion. Enjoy the roller-coaster ride of creeping up steep sand dunes to go plummeting down them much to your thrill and excitement – hold on tight! You can also go sand boarding. This is a whole new kind of workout – climb up the dunes with your board to go whizzing down a mass of deep-orange, rippling hills. A very unique desert experience.
