Why we like it ...

Are you ready to explore the tallest mountain in Oman? This 1-day trip is the perfect way to experience Jebel Shams and is ideal for the less adventurous folk. It is sure to bring on an adrenaline rush!

The professional guides from Twenty3 Extreme will lead you on this amazing adventure and give you instructions on abseiling.

With an abseil of 35m followed by a short section of the vertical Via Ferrata, this is a brilliant way to get your less adventurous friends to try something really amazing. As you reach the edge of the canyon, you will feel the wind pick up and your heartbeat racing. Enjoy the views while your instructor sets the ropes – make sure to bring your camera to capture these panoramic views. The descent doesn’t take too long; the stunning views are well worth it, as well as playing around (safely) on the lower ledges.

Once safely down the 35m abseil, it is time to start thinking about the ascent. Following the Via Ferrata, protected by a steel cable route up the villager's old path, make your way back up to where we started. The canyon behind is a whopping 2000m deep and up to 4000m wide in some places making the exposure you receive on this trip absolutely incredible.
