A short drive from Muscat through the scenic Hajar mountains takes one to the 17th century Nizwa Fort. Located amidst the gorgeous sand coloured mountains, the ancient city of Nizwa is a sight to behold. The souqs of Nizwa and the Friday goat market are other must sees here, and I would like to experience both.
