Travel Diaries - Mystical Oman

in travel •  9 days ago

Over the weekend we decided to explore some more of Oman, we wanted to keep it to places closer to Muscat city so we selected on visiting the most famous Bimmah Sinkhole and in the same line Wadi Dayqah Dam. Both the places were beautiful, unique in their own way..

So today I'll share some of our visit pictures and info of both these places..

Bimmah Sinkhole

This sinkhole is basically formed due to limestone erosion and the rocks collapsing due to which it has the sinkhole formation, though the locals believe that the sinkhole formation is due to a meteor falling in this spot. Its a very famous spot for tourist and locals as people come here either for a swim or just for a barbecue which can be done in the park area of the sinkhole..
The water here is crystal clear. The sinkhole is connected to the sea through a tunnel and hence you will find the same turquoise water off the sea here. If you ever visit Oman you should not miss out on Bimmah Sinkhole

The Sinkhole view from the top

A dive from the top, I do not know swimming so I miss out on this fun part. If you are really looking out for some adventure, this is one of the best thing one can do here.

And on our way to Wadi Dayqah Dam, look at the color of the water here, its so clear and sparkling. The drive all the way through is very scenic.

You can see the water here almost merging with the sky

This is at the Wadi Dayqah Dam, the dam gates were closed so we could not see the functioning of the dam, but the view here is amazing and yes we could spend some time in the park which was wonderful and I love spending time in nature and getting connected to mother earth so this is something that best suits me.

I could not get a very clear picture of the dam part so not putting up that part, the below picture is the side of the dam.

The final rays of the setting sun giving a message of how you can blend yourself with nature and flow with joy and ease.

And then to wind up the day we decided to do some yoga on the way. Yoga the way of our life

It was a fulfilled day spent in nature and so rejuvenating.

wow beautiful! We have just been to Jordan and the landscape looks very similar to this one. I hope one of our next destinations can be Oman!

·

Jordan is another one charming country. I like the way its placed on hills. If you really like to explore the unknown territories then Oman is the right destination

Very BIG BIG Upvote for this post!

You always show me places that I didn't know existed. I love this about your Blog.

How was the temperature in this place?

xx upvoted

·

Thank you my dear @elenahornfilm, I look forward to your comments as equal as you enjoy reading my blog.
Temperature in Oman right now is around 30 degrees so its not very hot and manageable to do day outings. If you want to visit here between Nov and April is the best time.
For sure this adventure you will love its perfectly your type bold and daring :)

·
·

Wow, here in Upstate New York, I can barely move my face after walking outside for 10min!

I would love to be in your part of the world in this very moment and go swimming!

This looks like paradise to me now. How are you feeling these days?

wow really precious

Such beautiful photos, I have added the sinkhole to my bucket list!

·

Thats awesome. I am sure whenever you do it you are gonna love it @wheresmyfitzy . Following u now.

Wow I like the post a lot. I planned to go to Oman but eventually my plans changed and was not able to travel there anymore. Have you tried their local food and have some pictures of it? (It is probably standard Arabic Mezze but is there something else?). Furthermore, have you visited Khasab city in the north-west near the UAE border? Keep up the good work. Upvoted. Cheers! @nainaztengra

·

That's sad you could not visit. Yes the food is kind of Arabic Mezze, but there are a few Omani specialities also, the Omani halwa is one, its sweet. Khasab city we haven't yet got a chance to visit but it is on our to do list, hopefully soon. Oman is a very rustic place and you find a mix of everthing here, the sea, the mountains and some parts also are very lush green like Salalah.

·
·

Thanks for the reply! I have heard about Salalah that it is the green part of Oman during certain periods. Definitely a nice country to visit.

i loved the pics of the man jumping on the sinkhole lake :)

·

Thank you @zaffron, yes the jump is quite an adventure

Really cool sinkhole pics!, looks like quite a drop.

·

Ohh yes it's good one and a lot of fun

Such natural beauty in Oman! I need to go and visit and go diving. My wife spent some time living in Jordan as a child and wants to go back to the Middle East to visit. I think I will make this a priority. Thanks

·

Oman has a lot of natural beautiful places including this one. We visited Jordan beginning of the year and found it very nice, its quite unique in its own way. Middle East is very enchanting, you need to know which all places to explore. Its a very rugged beauty. The best time is between Nov to April since the temperature is soothing.

Amazing pictures and I love the ocean 😊 such bright blue it almost hurts the eye 😎
Cool diving and I like to think I would dare but not really sure.... Lol
Cool sinking whole and love the story on your travels. Thank you for sharing dear!
As always amazing 🤗
Have a wonderful weekend!

·

Thank you dear @saffisara, Oman has some really wonderful places which are not very popular amongst the tourist, but I still do see a quite a few tourist exploring out here, specially coming for the dive, though I too would not dare to :-)

·
·

I belive that about that place. I'm sure tourists will find their way there sometimes, it's really amazing and seem like a great adventure 😆 have a wonderful evening!

It is really very beautifull place

Love the photos. 😄 The beautiful blue color of the sky and the water is trully a view - like the sky kissing the sea. What a wonderful adventure you had. Resteemed and upvoted.

Thank you @silasdavid, yes this place is truly amazing. But I feel personally that only people who enjoy adventure will enjoy this place else they would not find charm here because of its dry surroundings.

Wow! What a awesome place to enjoy our beautiful earth! Thanks for sharing these beautiful images and adventure. Steem on :)
