As we ride further up, we can view the rim of the Grand Canyon of Jabal Shams. Being the largest canyon in the Arabian Peninsula, this is an impressive sight which sits at a depth of 1000 meters.

Meet the tour leader outside Bank Muscat, Al Hamra, where we will get ready and check our bikes before we start the tour. This cycling tour follows fairly easy paths and we will cover around 50km on this Water Trail Bike Tour. We quickly come across a small spring that has sprung up high up in the mountain and we will cycle on the narrow mountain path that runs beside it. We keep following the spring downstream till we reach the Tanuf Mineral Water Factory. Here we will take a tour of the factory to see how the bottling and packaging of mineral water takes place. We then start cycling towards Kamah, a tiny village hidden away in an oasis situated right on the foothills of the majestic Al Hajar Mountains. We break for lunch at a picnic spot with spectacular views. After finishing up with lunch we will explore the village to gain a better understanding of the life here. We will also take a tour of the traditional aflaj irrigation system of Oman. Post the village tour we’ll return to Al Hamra by car.
