If you take the coastal road from Muscat to Bandar Khiran National Park, for example, and then plan to continue further east, but do not want to return to Muscat, you can try a shortcut through the rather interesting Wadi Mayh Valley, which will take you to to the highway connecting Muscat with Sur

Beginning of the journey through Wadi Mayh

The Wadi Mayh Valley is initially very wide and is run on gravel. Don't be discouraged by this, after about 6 kilometers a beautiful new asphalt starts

Wadi Mayh

Wadi Mayh is a relatively arid valley, surrounded only by occasional sparse vegetation.

Geologist's paradise

On the surrounding rocks, it is beautiful to see how the folds of the rocks once took place here.

Asphalt and Wadi Mayh

Unexpectedly, beautiful asphalt appears and the road starts to run differently and more comfortably.

Gorge at the end

At the very end of the road, the valley becomes a gorge and the asphalt disappears again. There are concrete walls to keep the water off the road, but in some places it's broken. It can be quite cheerful during lightning storms. After a while, there is a driveway on the highway. We liked this acronym that we didn't have to go back the same way
