Easy to find, great views from the top of the mountain. The road is paved all the way before the ascend. Then it's just gravel, but good enough even for a small car to drive on it. Although the water is nice and clear, great...More

After few kilometers from the Khasab airport a dirt road going across a onshore oil well will take you across to a idyllic fishing harbour called Khawr al Najad. This place is flocked by locals and GCC residents who take off in their private boat...More

The fjords of Khasab are the jewel in the crown that is Oman. It is a place you really must see. It is accessible by road from Muscat but it's a long drive. We flew and had a lovely time there

We camped here for a few nights and really enjoyed the view. A beautiful place, with friendly people to talk to. Not too far from Khasab. I also recommend taking a dolphin boat tour if you can.

Terrific View from the top of the mountain. Risky road but worth it for the view it offers of the sea between the mountains !!

You need a good 4x4 and a tour-guide (No GPS) to drive those mountains, breathtaking views, unusual bodies of water but be careful driving...

We traveled in four wheeled drive to this lookout over the fjords. The roads are unsealed and fairly rough and so 4WD would be recommended. I would also recommend having a local guide (we had an English speaking guide) as they can give you plenty...More

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.
