What people are saying:

It’s been a week since the villages full of history and special water came to Oman. I came to this place because I really like the culture of similar Arab countries, and one of the seemingly inconspicuous places impressed me, that is Nepal. Bicamaz of Zwa. Feel the ancient way of taking water. When I came to Bicamaz, I had to say that it was really chronological. The whole village gave me a very simple folk customs, and people were very enthusiastic, because this place is not particularly well-known. , So the surrounding tourists are very rare, almost all of them are locals, and the locals do not exclude foreigners like me, I feel quite good. One of the most famous is the canal here. I followed the footsteps of the villagers and saw with my own eyes how they used the most ancient ways to complete water fetching and irrigation. I thought it was very interesting and I learned and practiced it myself, which made me grow. Special insights and learned a lot. I have forgotten the existence of time to be able to watch and participate in such a culture, and it still makes me unforgettable after returning. At the end, the traffic in Xiao Amway is quite convenient, it is suitable to feel it with the mentality of learning experience! The whole village is especially quiet for thinking about life!

    How it used to be

    An interesting 30 minute walk around the old, mud brick village. Most of it is in ruins, but renovation of one or two buildings is already underway, and more are planned. Well worth a visit
