Jebel Shams

Jebel Shams - An excursion in Muscat, Oman
Oman possesses the highest point on the Arabian Peninsula, measuring 3 300 m above sea level, Jebel Shams. Here, high above the desert floor, temperatures are often 20 degrees cooler than the surrounding landscape. Jebel Shams, the ‘Mountain of the Sun’, forms part of the Jebel Akhdar or ‘Green Mountains’, so named for the vegetation which often covers the mountainsides. By contrast, the rest of the Hajjr mountain chain consists of rocky, barren slopes with little vegetation. Beneath Jebel Shams lies the magnificent Grand Canyon of Arabia, a truly breathtaking spectacle of rocky escarpments, jagged ravines and precariously perched villages clinging to the cliff face.
