Musandam tour packages: Jebel Harim is the highest point in Musandam, which reaches 2,087-meters high. Jebel Harim means the Mountain of Women. It was called this because Omani women used to go up the mountain and hide when they feared they might get kidnapped by pirates, while their men were away on fishing trips. Visitors can go hiking or drive up the hill to enjoy the spectacular views from its top, as they watch the surrounding valleys and villages. They can also camp on the magnificent mountain.

Khasab is the starting point for dhow cruises down the wonderful Khawr Sham, the biggest fjord in Musandam, ringed with the craggy red-rock mountains. Half a dozen tiny villages lie dotted around the khawr, accessible only by boat. You’re also likely to see pods of dolphins frolicking around the khawr, chasing boats for fun. Halfway down the khawr lies the rocky little Jazirat Telegraph (Telegraph Island), named after the telegraph station established here by the British in 1864 along the route of the London-to-Bombay submarine telegraph cable.
