Around Misfat Al Abriyyin

Misfat Al Abriyyin is a mountain village located just up the road from Al Hamra.  It is one of the few old villages that actively welcomes tourists, though the signs posted at the parking area of the village entrance remind visitors to act respectfully.  We stayed here after hiking the Balcony Walk in the Grand Canyon of Oman and really loved our authentic experience.
