not so far away from Muscat
None so far
In a nutshell
A great day trip from Muscat
Nizwa is praised in many tourist guides but the place is not very spectacular - apart from the
very nice surroundings of the Jebel Al Akhdar (mountains) and places such as Tanuf and Bahla
There are no hotels in Nizwa, you have to find a hotel on the road 10 km out of town. Since
there are no buses, you must catch a taxi, which is not always very easy. When drivers see
you are a tourist, they might charge you high fees. It depends on the driver's mood. Hotels
in Nizwa are quite pricy. Apart from the fort, there is not really anything to visit.
Mind that inside the country not really anybody speaks English. A guide is recommended.
Unique Suggestions: Visit the fort inside to enjoy a view over the oasis.
Fun Alternatives: Go to other places close to Jebel Akhdar.

If you have a good driver or the money to hire an actual guide/tour you will probably see this place. Sorry I lost my notes but if I recall correctly it was about a45 min to an hour from Nizwa. If you happen to know the name of the place shoot me a note and I will update it.
