Al Bateena Expedition

Culture and History tour in Rustaq

Tour Price : $90-360 Duration : 8-9 hours Languages: English, Russian, French


Today our tour is a great combination of ancient history, wildlife and nature.
We first stop at 18th century Al Hazm Castle. Tour with private guide in Muscat. While it is important for its significance in military history, it is also notable for the beauty and elegance of its architecture and decorative features.
The Rustaq Fort known as Qalat Al Kisra which had originally been built in 1250 is among the oldest and tallest forts in Oman. There is an impressive local souq next to the fort as well. Excursion in Muscat. So, we definately do not miss it!
Driving through Wadi bani Kharus is a journey through geological history. The youngest rocks are at the entrance and rich in small fossils but once driving deep into the wadi, we can find the oldest ones found in Oman dated back to 600 millions years.
The vertical cliffs are full of a variety of fossils and covered with many ancient drawings of animals and warriors. Some of drawings are 1, 500 years old.
One of the highlights of our trip is an impressive massive Nakhal Fort built on a rocky outcrop looking out over the date plantations.
