Tucked in at the foot of the mountains some 40km northwest of Nizwa (and 20km north of Bahla) lie several of the region’s most memorable attractions, including Al Hamra, one of Oman’s most atmospheric traditional towns, and Misfat al Abryeen, one of its prettiest villages, while it’s also worth making a short detour to the impressive Al Hoota cave nearby.
