Abseiling & Via Ferrata


  • Abseil off 40m cliffs
  • Via Ferrata back up
  • Enjoy picnic lunch


This half-day experience is a perfect way to experience Jebel Shams and get some adrenaline going for the less adventurous ones.

The activity will take around 2-3 hours, so we would suggest it to the guests staying near-by. If you are coming from Muscat, consider booking the Via Ferrata or Balcony Walk.

Enjoy spectacular views of the Jebel Shams from the very heart of the canyon. A short hike gets us to the cliff, which we will abseil off to get to a small lake, hidden in between the boulders.
The abseil is big enough to give you the thrill, yet short enough to be suitable for beginners and children.
We take some epic photos and rest in the shade before starting our climb up clipped on to a Via Ferrata cable.

We enjoy a picnic lunch and head back to Muscat.
