the trip or you can say short trip, from the morning till afternoon, the nature is fantastic, but the water in the valley is below the normal, one off road company driver with group of tourist, he went into the water, thinking that it is shallow water, and the brand new land-cruiser skunked into the water.

first of all, you need to have Oman insurance in you car.

on the road to Dubai Hatta road there is round about and petrol station on your right (Oman)

take the right direction keep driving straight, you will pass the Omai boarder point. No need for visa or stamp, just ID.

Keep driving straight you will pass one asphalt road on the left, but only for few meters, leave it,

and keep driving till you reach the left with full asphalt road, drive it for some time but be carful about the turns.

The valleys are in three spots, two on the left and the third on the right.

I will paste some photos or the google earth coordinates once I reach my laptop.

Note: this Friday, the valleys will be full of water, so be aware and enjoy.

First left
24°41'4.74"N
56° 9'18.30"E
Second left
24°41'53.35"N
56°10'19.47"E
Third right
24°42'47.61"N
56°11'10.67"E
These coordinates from GoogleEarth.
