Glimpse of Musandam, Oman
We took a small detour to Musandam, Oman, a small peninsula between the UAE and mainland Oman, for some diving and trekking through the rugged mountains. We didn't end up trekking as we got our fix of sore legs in Nepal. We did however did a day of diving including a mini refresher course ahead of our diving holiday in Playa del Carmen over New Years. The diving wasn't great mostly due to the visibility but there is some amazing life in the Musandam -- we saw a three sting rays which was amazing! The scenery around Musandam reminded me a lot of the Sinai peninsula in Egypt. The "fjords" of the Middle East as they call it is no less spectacular. Here's a glimpse of Musandam: untouched and unspoilt.
