a beautifully terraced farming village

Wakan ist ein Dörfchen mit wunderschön terrassierten Feldern und spektakulärem Blick auf das Wadi Mistal. Es liegt 2.000 Meter über dem Meeresspiegel im Hajar-Gebirge. Wanderwege und Aussichtsplattformen, von denen sich ein atemberaubender Panoramablick auf das darunterliegende Wadi auftut, machen das Dorf unbedingt einen Besuch wert.

Located 2,000 meters above sea level and in the Western Hajar Mountains is Wakan village (قرية وكان), a small mountain village with beautiful terraced gardens overlooking the surrounding mountains above and Wadi Mistal below. Wakan village is officially part of Wilayt Nakhal in the South Batinah Governorate, although its located right in the border with Al Dakhiliyah Governorate through Al Hajar mountain range.

A viewing platform is the first sight that greets you as soon as you enter the village. It offers spectacular views of Wadi Mistal and the surrounding mountains. There is also a visitors information center building which is still not opened. From there you can exploring this beautiful village by foot. There are a couple of hiking tracks that start at the village, and they are marked by the familiar yellow, green and red flag that mark most hiking tracks in Oman.
