Hidden World, Lost Valley! - The Remote Village of Mibam in Oman ....{by Bassam}

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

One of the most difficult places to reach in all of Oman.

This very beautiful village lies on the banks of Wadi Tiwi(dry river) and it can be reached only by using a 4x4 car because of the dusty and rough road that twists along the wadi banks, rocks the size of a small house are every where along the way. The people there are very hospitable, friendly and so very original, hardly spoiled by the new world effects.
