Nakhl Fort & Hot Springs
USD95 per person
En route to Nakhal, you’ll stop at the peaceful Thowarah Hot Springs, charmingly nestled near to a lush oasis, framed by majestic mountains.
Then soak up the views from the battle-seasoned Nakhal Fort. Perched on a hilltop, 200-feet above the Nakhal palm oasis, you’ll find commanding vistas of the surrounding date plantation.
This unique fortress doesn’t conform to a specific shape. Instead it follows the natural shape of the rock that it sits upon. Highlights include the ladies’ sitting room and the wali’s barzas and majli’s (the ruler’s court and tent where he met his citizens), as well as the old prison.
Enjoy a delicious buffet lunch at a resort hotel, and upon returning to Muscat, a photo stop at the Grand Mosque.
