The village sits at 2,000 meters above sea level in Wadi Mastal in Wilayt Nakhal, located in Al Batinah South Governorate. 150 kilometres separate this village from Muscat. The road leading to the village passes through a number of valleys where the villages can only be reached by a four-wheel-drive vehicle.
This region enjoys moderate temperatures in summer and low temperatures in winter. Visitors will observe many agricultural terraces supporting fruit trees, including grapes, pomegranates and apricots, as well as some legumes.
At the village entrance is an Information and Visitors’ Centre. A trail has been built stretching for 1,100 metres, comprising 700 steps rising to the top of the mountain, surrounded by a protective fence and containing service areas as well as observation towers that look like castles and umbrellas. You’ll also find sitting areas and a rest shelter overlooking the village and its terraces.
The descending Falaj passes from the top of the village towards the agricultural terraces where natural materials were used in building the trail. For lovers of mountain hiking, there is a mountainous trail that connects the village to Al Jabal Al Akhdar (Green Mountain).
