Wadi Al Jizzi

Home > Al Batinah North > Wadi Al Jizzi

Wadi Al Jizzi connects Al Batinah Coast to Al Buraimi, it is one of the oldest passages that crosses the Northern Oman Mountains. It was well known as a mining center for copper production in Oman. Today, it is famous for its rock formations from which copper is extracted. Pillow lavas (volcanic) are less than 35 km southwest of the main intersection with Sohar-Al Buraimi Road, and it overlooks the old road east of AS SUHAYLAH village. About 95 million years ago, this magma cooled at the bottom of the ocean and allowed people to enjoy the amazing formations and turn back millions of years.
