Al Nakhar Canyon in Jebal Shams in Oman ....{by Bassam}

It is not just the deepest in Oman and Arabia but even deeper than the Grand Canyon of America, though narrower than it. Al Nakhar canyon, in Jebal Shams, is the highest in Arabia, rightfully called by geologists, Oman Grand Canyon: it is almost 1,000 metres deep when you stand at the Shorfat al Nakhar ( this spot ).

Jabal Shams, literary “the sun mountain”, 3,000 metres above sea level, the highest peak in Arabia, so called because it is first of Oman territory the sun shines on.
