Trekking in Riyam
Hiking in Muscat, a capital city? Yes, it is possible. One of the particularities of Muscat is that it is composed of neighborhoods separated by rocky hills. This means that you can climb those hills to get nice views, especially on trail C38 between Riyam and Muttrah.
Trekking in Oman
Starting in front of Riyam Park, Riyam Path begins with a steep climb at the end of which trekkers are rewarded with spectacular views of the sea and the surrounding area. The path gradually descends through an old abandoned village and takes you to Muttrah, a great way to explore the old part of Muscat directly.

Cairo Top Tour representative will pick you up at your hotel to start your wonderful trekking in Riyam. You will start by following the colored markers from the Riyam parking area. A rusty old diesel pipeline is your evidence of a time when Oman's only power plant was located in Riyam, and the diesel supply was pumped through the pipeline from a ship anchored in Mutrah.
You can see the well-laid stone slabs climbing up the hill. They have been used by countless generations of visitors to Mutrah and the hinterland to help them climb the last few hills before entering the Muscat Gate. At that time, the only way to reach Muscat was by sea or by road. Once you have reached the highest parts of the route, turn around to enjoy the incredible view over the coast and the sea. Be careful when descending towards the abandoned settlement, as it can be slippery in places. Check out the ancient water cistern and falaj irrigation system, which are still visible, and then enjoy the climb that is sometimes necessary to pass the wadi leading to Mutrah. After completing your hiking tour in Oman, our guide will take you back to your hotel.
