In the east of Oman, I went to a photovoltaic project on a business trip. It was really beautiful and desolate.
The Wahiba Desert in Aman is named because it belongs to the Wahiba tribal area. The Wahiba Desert stretches for 180 kilometers from north to south and 80 kilometers from east to west. Although it is not comparable to the Sahara Desert in North Africa, it is quite impressive. The general desert is not entirely sand, but a large part of it is gravel.
The Wahiba Desert is really good, go and see
The Wassibi Desert is located in the eastern part of Oman. The vast desert is covered with undulating sand dunes of various sizes, and acacia trees and thorn bushes occasionally grow among the ochre sand. There are also many camps here. Every year, travel friends come here from all over the world, or take a 4-wheel drive jeep, or ride a local camel to visit the hinterland of the desert. In the evening, sit on a sand dune to admire the sunset, and then enjoy a delicious meal. The starry sky twinkles in the desert night, and you sleep in the quiet desert. There are still a large number of Bedouins living in the desert and living a nomadic life, raising goats, sheep and camels. It is very possible to run into their big tent during the tour. If you have the opportunity, you can have a sip of Bedouin tea or wine. Omani coffee is also great. Riding a four-wheel drive jeep on the sand dunes is a rare experience. The fast up and down is as exciting as a roller coaster. The only suggestion is to remember to wear a seat belt.
