In a country chock-full of jaw-dropping scenery, Khor Ash Sham in the Musandam Peninsula is high on the list of extraordinary natural sites. Musandam is something of an outpost, separated from the country’s mainland by a sizable chunk of northern UAE. It thrusts into the Strait of Hormuz at the eastern most point of the Arabian Peninsula. With its deeply cut, mountainous coastline plunging into the sea, the area is often compared to Norway. Day-cruising in the “fjords,” usually with an escort of playful dolphins, is a top tourist attraction in Musandam, along with exploring the rugged interior by 4-wheel drive.
Can you name that country?
