Jebel Shams

Jebel Shams ('mountain of the sun') is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 3.009m (9,872ft) above the sea level, located in the Al Hajar Mountains range, in northeastern Oman.

The road to the summit, the highest mountain of the country, starts as tarmac but also has rough sections. It’s very steep. Only 4x4. At the summit there’s a military base. The access is restricted. The road follows the spectacularly deep Wadi Ghul.
