Musandam tour packages: There are two types of dolphin that visit the Musandam waters; the Humpback dolphins (Sousa Chinensis), and the Bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops Aduncus). Visitors can go watch the dolphins through a boat ride, or sail around them in a traditional Omani Dhow.
The Jebel Harim peak stands tall and proud at 2,087 meters. It’s the highest peak in Musandam. The words Jebel Harim literally means the ‘Mountain of Women’. It’s been named this way given that during the days of piracy and colonization by the Portuguese, Omani women would hide up the mountain fearing kidnap and molestation. Enjoy spectacular views from the top of this peak, of the surrounding valleys and villages. You can also camp on this mountain, and trek or hike to your heart’s content.
An even more dramatic boat trip leads out to the famously remote town of Kumzar. The only way to reach the place is by boat – around two and a half hours by dhow or 45 minutes to an hour by speedboat. It is no longer possible to visit the town itself, but it is still well worth the trip out for the magnificent marine scenery. Trips head out into the open sea around the coast, passing the entrance to Khawr Ghob Ali and then past Jazirat al Ghanim (Goat Island). The journey continues into the Strait of Hormuz, with wonderful sea views of craggy headlands, distant islands and oil tankers plying up and down the strait, before turning in towards Kumzar itself, a colourful huddle of buildings wedged below sheer cliffs.

Hajar Mountains have several valleys, each known as a ‘Wadi’ in the local language. These Wadis offer adventurous activities to thrill-seekers. Among the first things to do in Musandam, enjoy a highly recommended four-wheel drive in the Wadis of this place. The adventurous drive has many stops where you can get off the vehicle and roam in the area. Among the Wadis, the Wilayat Khasab is a popular site for the Jabal Hareem Fossils – fossils of fishes and other marine animals. Their geological age is around 250 million years old!
