arabian peninsula

In October 2012 I spent two weeks in the Sultanate of Oman. The country is located on the eastern edge of the Arabian Peninsula. It's diverse geography includes rugged coasts, placid beaches, craggy mountains, salt flats, oasis and deserts. Hiking is by far the best way to enjoy Oman's spectacular mountain-landscape.
