A 4×4 experience

Die Zuckerdünen von Al Khaluf in der Nähe von Filim machen ihrem Namen alle Ehre: Großflächige, weiße Sanddünen erstrecken sich bis zur Küste. Um diese Gegend zu erkunden ist ein Allradfahrzeug unerlässlich. Zudem ist es empfehlenswert, die Dienste eines Führers in Anspruch zu nehmen.

White desert, also known as Sugar Dunes or Al Khaluf Dunes is another natural phenomenon in Oman located near fishing village of Al Khaluf, 400km south of Muscat.

Khaluf sands is one of the most alluring locations in Oman, but also one of the most challenging for the inexperienced driver.
The big white sand dunes that are found beyond the village of Khaluf are very soft, and only approachable with a good 4×4.

The dunes are permanently exposed to strong winds from the ocean, and are constantly moving. This prevents them from hardening and, consequently, it is much easier to get stuck here than in other places where sand dunes exist.
