The Jebel Harim peak stands tall and proud at 2,087 meters. It’s the highest peak in Musandam. The words Jebel Harim literally means the ‘Mountain of Women’. It’s been named this way given that during the days of piracy and colonization by the Portuguese, Omani women would hide up the mountain fearing kidnap and molestation. Enjoy spectacular views from the top of this peak, of the surrounding valleys and villages. You can also camp on this mountain, and trek or hike to your heart’s content.
