near Al Qurayḩah, Muscat (Sultanate of Oman)

A walk thru the mountains from Amerat to the Hamriya / Yiti road... We didn’t finish the walk but could clearly see the road as we had to head back to start and it was already getting hot.....it’s would be a great walk in either direction with cars at bothe ends ... easier in reverse ... the route is well way marked with red/yellow/white painted markers .. it’s uneven underfoot and has a little bit of scrambling... you need 2l if water per person and first aid kit etc... from amerat go along old road track.. after passing under road viaduct turn right up side wadi following markers ... the route climbs steadily from there ... sometimes coming away from wadi ... great views and remote
