Photos from the top of Sun Mountain / Jebel Shams Oman

The drive up Jebel Shams starts from the village of Al Hamra and takes about 45 minutes. Towards the top, there is about 4-5 km of unpaved road to ascend. One could make it in a regular car, but we used a 4-wheel drive.

There are three 'resorts' at the top, but not much else in the way of facilities. One should bring their own supplies and food. The weather at the top is about 10-15 C cooler than at the base which makes for a nice respite from the heat in the summer. There are opportunities galore for camping and hiking. See: for some routes.
