Omani wonders of nature on Hasik-Shuwaymiyah road
by Wojciech Fedoruk - 2 years, 5 months ago
Until January 2014 passenger cars travelling from northern Oman to Salalah had to choose boring central road through the desert. The alternative route along the coast had an about 150-km break in the mountains near Hasik. Fortunately, at the beginning of 2014 that remaining part was constructed and I was one of the first tourists visiting that wonderful route. The newly build road is in quite high mountains but very close to the sea coast, so the landscape was really amazing. We stopped the car almost every couple of minutes to make photos of that beauty.
