Qasbar Fort

Salalah, Oman

Qasbar Fort (Khasbar Fort) (off of the road to Ayn Tabruk, west of Taqah). An old ruined fort with commanding views of the surrounding area. The fort and the ruins scattered around it have been tentatively dated to the Sumhuram period, although no excavations have been carried out. The site was later occupied by the Portuguese, and used again during the Dhofar Rebellion. A well-worn footpath leads to the fort from the dirt road; plan on about 2 hours for the round trip hike. Note: this hike is best done in the dry season when there is no grass, as the area is known for Arabian cobras
