Oman is a country on the southeastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula and the oldest independent state in the Arab world. The Capital City is Muscat. Oman has been ruled by the Al Said Family since 1744. It is also estimated that humans have been living here for at least 106,000 years, making it one of the oldest human-inhabited countries on Earth.
Oman is known for Wadi’s deserts, beaches, and mountains. Jebel Shams is Oman’s tallest mountain and is a popular destination for camping. It is also famous for its ancient Oases, irrigation system, terraced orchards (Jebel Akhdar), fortresses, mosques, wadis (stream valleys), dhows (traditional Arabian sailing ships), meteorites, and Al Said, the world’s third-largest yacht, owned by the Sultan.
