City tour of Khasab (half day)

This half-day excursion provides an introduction to parts of the Musandam Peninsula and its capital of Khasab.

Visit the Khasab Fort, this picturesque stronghold built in the 17th century by the Portuguese seeking dominion over the maritime trade in the Strait of Hormuz. The fort was erected to prevent attacks from the sea. Teak wood from India was used for its construction and the roof was fashioned from a mix of palm leaves and clay. Within its low, crenelleted walls, the fort contains a large central tower which is thought to pre-date the fort itself. The structure you see today is the result of extensive restoration work carried out in the late 20th century. The forts location offers excellent views and photo opportunities.

Wadi Tawi rive to Wadi Tawi where one could see the pre-historical rock paintings depecting camel, ship, warier etc.
