Day 1 (Muscat-Sur)
Early in the morning Lady Egypt Tours representative will pick you up from Muscat International Airport or your hotel to drive you to Wadi Arbayeen with spectacular karst plateau of Eastern Hajar raising 1,500 meters above sea level. Take a walk through the wadi, explore the green-water pools carved between the mountains and then proceed to Wadi Dayqah, a Gorge of Narrow Torrent. The next stop will be at picturesque Bimah Sinkhole that appeared as a result of erosion thousands of years ago. From here you will move to Wadi Shab and Wadi Tiwi passing scenic white beaches. En route you will visit dome-less Bibi Maryam Mausoleum, the only surviving monument of the ancient city of Qalhat covering an area of 240,000 square meters. Once an important seaport, it was destroyed in 1508 and never rebuilt again. Another highlight of this day is the city of Sur, an important trade center with India and East Africa by the 6th century that was conquered by the Portuguese in the 16th century and liberated later by the Omani imam Nasir ibn Murshid. The city is famous with its traditional wooden ships called dhows. In the open-air museum of Sur you can find a restored dhow of Fatah Al Khair constructed in the 8th century. After the excursion you will head to the hotel and have some rest, getting ready for the evening discoveries. After dinner Lady Egypt Tours guide will take you to the Green Turtle Beach to watch them laying eggs. You will then return to Sur hotel and overnight. (D)
