Located in the remote and still pristine wilderness area of the Musandam Peninsula, in Oman, Khor an-Najd is the only khor accessible by vehicle (4WD only).
The road to the inlet of Najd is totally unpaved and curvy. It’s 6.6km (4.10 miles) long. 4x4 vehicles only. The minimalist desert landscape gives way to this craggy and rocky inlet that is hidden from the Strait of Hormuz. It can be busy and a little rubbish-strewn. Best to avoid weekends and Public Holidays.
