An easy off road drive, easier with 4 WD though, I suspect it would get busy in winter given the ease to get there. Some people stop at the beginning of the descent but it's worth the drive down.

A natural creek approachable by 4WD through gatch road. Top view point (400 m elevation) is about half an hour drive from Atana Musanadam Resort. Scenery from view point is mesmerising. Heard that its a nice spot for overnight camping in winter months.

This is a short trip out of Khasab and well worth it. The views from the top are amazing and even the road up is quite dramatic - with a sheer unprotected drop.

Hi Abu_2608. You will definitely need a four wheel drive to visit Khor Najd. The road is unpaved and quite steep for a Yaris. Don't risk taking your car up there.
