A beautiful view of the Wadi Ghul,
Jebel Shams is most known for its beautiful view of the Wadi Ghul, that lays deep below it. The wadi is an attraction in its own right, leading through a number of traditional villages that can only be accessed by 4WD.
Wadi Ghul is an abandoned village, located to the northwest of Al Hamra in Oman. The area is referred to as the «Omani Grand Canyon» or «The Grand Canyon of Arabia». It is near Jebel Shams, the highest mountain peak in Oman.
