Known as the Mountain of Women, the beautiful Jebel Harim is the highest peak in Musandam located at 2,087 meters above sea level, offering breathtaking views of the glorious valley. The rocks on the mountains are studded with well-preserved fossils, showing signs of life from creatures like molluscs, fish, clams and a collection of trilobites. The summit of the mountain is off-limits to the public as there is a radar station situated on the peak, watching the shipping action on the Straights of Hormuz.
It is a beautiful drive with paved roads all around the mountain. On your way down, you'll see a stunning fossil wall, which is made out of a sea bed rock. It's covered in a layer of fossilized impressions with outlines of starfish and other sea animals.
