Nakhal is 1/2hour ago from Barka. It is localised in a palm grove and there is a hot spring spot. The city is just beautiful.

There is also a fort in Nakhal much more interesting than the one in Barka because it is bigger, and all the rooms are presented with traditional fourniture than you can touch. You feel like a real Omani living in the fort.

Moreover, there are not much tourist (we were almost alone in the forts). so it is very pleasant to feel like you're among the very first to discover the country.


  1. Salut à toi,

    Tu fais quoi à Muscat ?
    Moi j'y ai vécu un an et demi, je suis rentré en décembre 2005 à la capitale et le retour fût très très difficile.


  2. je travaille pour Omantel, pour Capgemini France. Je bosse du coté d'Al-khuwayr. Il est vrai que la vie ici est assez plaisante je me demande comment je prendrai le retour à Paris ...

  3. I really fancied your beautiful photos and it seems to me you have not stopped crusing the country from the day your plane landed in Muscat! Incridble effort which is highly appreciated! Welcome to Oman and enjoy your stay;)
