Jebal Shams Junior - Family trip - Oman

This trip is about planting the seeds for the future. It's about developing the next generation of explorers. It's about letting them experience sleeping under the stars early in their life, and about experiencing something now so they can care about it later.

This trip is also designed for parent to spend quality time with their children away from the materialistic world we live in and away from ipads and electronics.

The trip starts on Friday at 6 AM where the team of children and parent will travel to Jebal Shams, the team will arrive around 10 AM to start a balcony hike overlooking the Oman Grand Canyon. The hike should take about 4 hours and it is very defined and well marked. This is an easy hike for people who hiked before and moderate hike for those who never hiked before. The destination is a few thousand year old abandon village at the end of the trail.
