Landscape in Oman
The landscape in Oman is as varied as in only a few Arab countries. This is partly due to the size of the country and partly due to the fact that different landscape types come together here in a relatively small area. There is everything from mountains and endless deserts to fertile oases and a beautiful coastline. In short, Oman invites its admirers with a wonderful, diversified and above all in most parts untouched nature..
The regions and their characteristics
The east of the country is characterized by a 1700 km long coast. Here, you will find beautiful sandy beaches, but also breathtaking cliffs. In the coastal region, you can also find the Batinah Plain, a 400 km long, very fertile plain that is the basis for most of Omani agriculture. The coast is surrounded by the Oman Mountains, which are also called Hajar Mountains. Some mountains of this mountain range are more than 3000 meters high. The landscape allows beautiful hiking tours through the mountains and adventurous climbing tours. Also, rafting tours are possible here. In the places where the mountains reach the coast, there are small bays, reminiscent of the fjords in northern Europe. The interior of the country is mostly made up of desert, which accounts for the fact that Oman is widely known as a desert state even today. In addition to the Hajar Mountains, there are the Dhofar Mountains and other mountainous regions that characterize Oman’s appearance.
Every part of the country has its own charm
The coastal region with its picturesque sandy beaches, fishing villages, and hotels which are deliberately designed to suit the region is the main holiday attraction in Oman. The cliffs are rather for adventurers who love fantastic natural wonders. On boat tours, you can also visit these beautiful coastlines from the holiday regions in Oman. The mountains are a region where there are many hikers and adventure holidaymakers – no wonder since the Oman Mountains are a unique and quiet mountain range, where you can enjoy nature on various hiking trails in the small group you are traveling with. The diversity of the offers for tourists that is available nowadays should not be underestimated. In the mountainous regions of Oman. there is a large selection of hotels, some of which are very family-friendly. The desert regions with their countless small and large oases is also home to the nomads of the country. Here, it can feel as if time had stopped. Jeep safaris into the desert are offered by the best resorts in Oman. Of course, many of the tent villages you see during those trips have been maintained to look the way they used for visitors.
