Take off on a four-hour, four-wheel Jeep adventure that will have you exploring around Jebel Harim mountain's rocky landscapes, stopping in Sayah's Bedouin village and admiring spectacular bayfront panoramas at Khawr Najd viewpoint. Hop in a four-person, four-wheel-drive vehicle and get ready for a bumpy ride along paths that wind through shady Acacia forest and dry wadi riverbeds. Ascend Jebel Harim, the "Mountain of Women" where local women once hid in caves from marauding pirates and rival tribes. Standing over 2,000 meters tall, this is the highest point on the Musandam Peninsula, and you'll relish a birds-eye view of the Strait of Hormuz below. In the tiny village of Sayah you'll get a first-hand glimpse into the nomadic lifestyle of local Bedouin families, plus view a collection of pre-historic fossils and petroglyphs dating back 3,000 years. Travel through palm groves to Khawr Najd, a natural creek at the rim of a bay where steep limestone cliffs plunge into clear-blue waters. Take a selfie with the astounding mountain scenery before rumbling your way back to the pier.
